Junior Hoilett has signed a short-term deal to join Aberdeen until the end of the season.

The experienced Canadian international will work under Neil Warnock at a third club. The pair had previously worked together at QPR and Cardiff City.

Now, Hoilett has signed a contract until the end of the season at Aberdeen in a bid to improve on their ninth-spot in the Scottish Premiership.

Commenting on the signing, manager Warnock said: “Junior is a player I know well; he’s played for me three times so I know him inside out.

“He’s an international player and I think he’ll benefit the squad between now and the end of the season.”

Hoilett added: “I’ve worked with the gaffer before so it was a no brainer to come up here and join him.

“It’s a great opportunity and I’m just happy at the prosect of getting back out there playing football again under a manager who knows how to get the best out of the squad. I’ve no doubt he’ll get everyone working together so I’m delighted to be here.

“I still have a lot of fire in me for the game. I want to enjoy playing football again. I have been keeping fit training with Reading and just waiting for the right opportunity to come along. When the gaffer phoned it was a blessing and I am delighted to be here.

“I can tell already from the welcome I’ve had that it’s a great club and I want to be part of it and help the squad move up the table.”
