Rob Milsom Signs For Dons

Last updated : 13 January 2011 By Stand Free Ed

ABERDEEN have announced the capture of Fulham midfielder Rob Milsom.

The player will be unveiled at a press conference at Pittodrie today, and becomes the club's third new face of the January transfer window.

The 24-year-old can play in the centre or left-hand side of midfield after starting his career as a left-back.

Milsom is a product of the Fulham youth academy, but has failed to break through to the Premiership club's first team and has spent time on loan at Brentford, Southend Utd and Finnish club TPS in the last few years.

His only appearance for Fulham was as a sub at Old Trafford in February 2009.

Aberdeen have been short in midfield since Fraser Fyvie suffered a serious injury earlier in the season, and the deficiency was amplified when Yoann Folly joined Fyvie in the treatment room until the summer.

And boss Craig Brown has repeatedly stated that this is an area that he wants to add to this month.

Milsom joins defenders David McNamee and Myles Anderson as new signings at Pittodrie during the mid-season transfer opening.

Brown told Aberdeen's official website RedWeb: "We are delighted to have signed Rob. He excelled on loan in Finland last season.

"Again our good relationship with Fulham through the manager Mark Hughes and his relationship with Archie, from their time at Manchester United and my friendship with reserve team coach Billy McKinlay, has enabled us to make this additional good signing for Aberdeen."

Aberdeen-Mad's man in London, RowZ, posted yesterday afternoon that Milsom was the Dons' signing target (click here), so for all the quickest and most accurate signing gossip, head over to the Stand Free Forum!
