Gleeson's Aberdeen Move Confirmed
Tuesday, 19th Jun 2018 11:24
Aberdeen have confirmed that released Blues midfielder Stephen Gleeson has agreed to join them on a two-year deal from July 1st.
The 29-year-old was reported to be close to moving to the Scottish Premiership side, who are in the Europa League in 2018/19, a week ago.
Irish international Gleeson made five starts and five sub appearances for Town having signed a short-term deal in January after his Birmingham contract was terminated by mutual consent.
“I’m delighted to bring his experience to Aberdeen,” Dons boss Derek McInnes told their official website.
“He’s exactly the type of player we wanted for that role. He’s got the qualities to be a very good player, both on and off the pitch and as a club we’ll be able to give him what he demands of himself.”

A Head in the Right Place by NormEmerges
A nice victory against Wigan, well played the Town, and you achieved it without what many consider our best player. For the second match in a row, Flynn Downes was left out because “his head wasn’t in the right place”.
Pyramid Strong by Mullet
On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
