It seems that Jimmy Calderwood, Willie Miller and Dons old boy Theo Ten Caat have finally managed to convince Dutch amateur striker Robert Fik that his future lies in Aberdeen and Fik is now expected to sign a year long deal with the option of another if everything goes well.

Robert has been reluctant to move his girlfriend and two young boys to the north east of Scotland but he has been influenced by Theo Ten Caat who told him many good things about the club.

Fik said, ‘I will be going to Aberdeen this week. I will speak to the club about my contract and, hopefully, we can come to some kind of agreement.

‘We will also be looking at houses when I am there. My girlfriend will be coming with me so we will have a look around the city together.

‘We have two young sons so we have a lot to consider. We need to find a school for them to go to and there are things we need to think over.

‘But, hopefully, we can sort something out. I was at the match against Rangers a couple of weeks ago and trained with the group for a couple of days before the game.

‘It was a great experience for me. I liked it in Aberdeen and it would be good to go back there next season.’

Robert then spoke of Ten Caat`s involvement in the deal, ‘I come from the same village as Theo and he gave me some information about the club.

‘I have followed football all my life so I knew about Aberdeen anyway.’

o it seems we are getting a new striker after all and Fik is likely to be the last of the summer signings Jimmy will make.

With the addition of Jackie McNamara, Lee Mair, Jonanthan Kurrant, Jeffrey De Visscher and almost certainly now Robert Fik to the squad to counter balance the loss of Gary Dempsey, Jamie Winter, Dyron Daal and David Donald, do you think that the Dons are better off or will we rue the losses the team has taken?

Answers to whether you think the squad for next season is better than last seasons on the Vital Aberdeen Forum please.
