In a show of commitment and testament to how happy the players seem to be t Pittodrie at present, Dutchman Dyron Daal has remarkably claimed that he is willing to sign on for the Dons for six more months without receiving anything more than expenses compensation.

The man who brought him to Pittodrie on amateur forms, Jimmy Calderwood, summed up the unusual and complicated situation as to why Dyron is not being paid or offered a longer deal.

Jimmy said ‘We won’t sign Dyron on a professional deal until next season although it’s not certain we will offer him a contract.

‘But that’s less of a financial problem because we are only allowed to pay him a certain figure while he is on an amateur form.

‘Dyron is still only 23 so we would have to pay a compensation fee to some of his other clubs like Ajax and Utrecht if we did decide to sign him.

‘But I don’t want to get involved in that side of things so we will wait.

‘He’s done a lot better in recent weeks and has to keep impressing.’

Dyron will turn 24 during the course of next season and that will permit Aberdeen to sign him professionally without having to pay compensation to both his previous clubs Ajax and Utrecht.

6` 4″ striker Dyron should get another chance to show the manager what he can do if he, as expected, takes the field against Bohemians in Dublin tomorrow night and he hopes to get back to form that interested Jimmy in the first instance.

Dyron spoke of his period with the Dons, ‘I started well at Aberdeen but have been unlucky with injuries,’ said Daal, who was flying out for Dublin with the Dons today to prepare for their friendly tomorrow.

Daal continued’There was interest from some other clubs in January but I’m only thinking about Aberdeen.

‘I want to stay. I’m happy with the situation and will do everything I can to get something sorted at Aberdeen.’

Skipper Russell Anderson and midfielder Chris Clark are both doubts for the clash with Bohs.

Anderson suffered a back injury against Celtic while Clark was forced off early against the Bank of Scotland SPL champions with an arm problem.



Below is a bizarre clip of Dyron Daal at Celtic Park in amongst the Dons fans. Can anybody shed any light on this?
