ABERDEEN have signed Scotland Under-19 starlet Peter Pawlett on a four-and-a-half year deal.
The talented 18-year-old has inked a contract which will keep him at the club until summer 2014.
The attacking midfielder is another product of head of youth development Len Taylor's rejuvenated Youth Academy, after joining as a 10-year -ld back in 2001.
Despite being born in Hull, he made his international debut for Scotland Under 19's earlier this month in a 0-0 friendly draw with Germany, taking advantage of FIFA's new schooling rules.
Pawlett joins fellow Youth Academy prodigy Jack Grimmer in penning a Dons deal, after Grimmer signed his first professional contract with the club last week.
The Dons have beaten off stiff competition for the talented youngster's signature.
Aberdeen legend and Director of Football Willie Miller said: "Jack has really impressed us and we are delighted he has chosen to sign his first professional deal with Aberdeen FC.
"The young players at the club are now flourishing, and we have high hopes for Jack providing he continues to develop and work hard like he has been doing."
