Icelandic website has reported that Keflavik FC striker Thorarinn Kristjansson's transfer to Aberdeen is a done deal.

This article appears on the website:

Keflavik FC striker Thorarinn Kristjansson today put pen to paper on a six month contract with Scottish side Aberdeen. His agent Gudlaugur Tomasson confirmed this to just now. The contract runs for 6 months with a possibility of further two more years,

Thorarinn won the Icelandic cup last summer with Keflavik last season where he was man of the match. He has been training all over the world lately. He went on a trial at Norwegian side Aalesund and five Icelandic sides tried to sign him.

He went with his teammate Hordur Sveinsson to train with South Korean team Buscan. He did well there, scoring a goal in a practice match. Then he went to Norwegan side Bryne who wanted to sign him but he decided to try his luck out with Aberdeen first. It seems he did well at Aberdeen because he signed a deal with the club today.

Aberdeen is in 4th place in the Scottish league at the moment and are battling Hibernian for 3rd place.

However, the article is dated Friday 7th January, and nothing has been confirmed by player or club as yet.
