Aberdeen have confirmed the signing of former Reading winger Junior Hoilett on a short-term deal.

The 33-year-old played over 65 times in two seasons with the Royals, part of the team that were relegated from the Championship last year.

A Premier League regular for the likes of Blackburn Rovers and Cardiff City, the Canada international links up with veteran boss Neil Warnock at Pittodre.

Warnock signed the winger for Cardiff City and Queens Park Rangers, as well as trying to sign him while manager of Huddersfield Town.

Hoilett said: “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 prospect 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.”
