Craig Brown hoping to add to signings of Niall McGinn and Jonny Hayes

Aberdeen manager Craig Brown is still looking to add to his squad ahead of the new season.

Brown has signed wide players Niall McGinn and Jonny Hayes this summer with the likes of Kari Arnason and Darren Mackie moving on.

Brown also believes youngsters such as Joe Shaughnessy and Nicky Low, who were on loan with Forfar last season, can make an impact.

Brown, whose team beat Arbroath 5-1 in a Gayfield friendly on Saturday, told RedTV: "I think with maybe another signing to give us cover we'll be ready to start the season.

"We have got several irons in the fire but if we don't it's not the end of the world. We have signed seven young players - four under-19s and three from Forfar."

The Dons also look set to lose midfielder Fraser Fyvie in the coming weeks. The teenager's contract expires in December but he refused an extension and is keen to leave this summer.

"There's been interest, I'm told, from Fulham and Wigan," Brown said.

"He has got his agent on the case trying to get him sorted before the start of the season."
