New signing Andrew Driver has said he’s relishing the opportunity he’s been handed at Aberdeen but he knows it won’t be easy.

Having signed a short term deal until the end of the season yesterday, having been clubless since leaving Houston Dynamo in the MLS, Driver told the Official Site that all that’s holding him back at the minute is his international clearance, and then of course he has to show he’s worthy of getting in the team ahead of others.

‘For me personally it is a difficult time (of the season) to get back in so I am very grateful to the manager and the coaching staff for giving me the opportunity. I am hoping to come in and repay them for taking that chance. I am just looking forward to now getting my head down and working hard. I can concentrate fully on playing football.’

Driver goes on to say that it’s never easy going into a new dressing room when you move in the transfer windows, so to come in at March, does make it difficult as you are the only newbie and there’s nobody else in your position, but he’s been made to feel welcome so far and he feels there’s a really good team spirit amongst the place so he’s looking forward to settling in and hopefully proving his worth.

Of course coming in on his pseudo trial when he did, and being able to travel to the Tenerife training camp obviously helped loads on that score.

‘Aberdeen is a massive club and the team have been doing fantastic this season. From what I have seen in training the guys look like a top team. I am really enjoying being involved with those guys. The manager is also a big reason I am here. He is someone you want to play for.’
