It’s the news we all wanted to hear, Lee Miller is staying at Pittodrie. The former Hearts and Dundee United striker joined Aberdeen at the start of last season. After a relatively poor first season Miller’s been on top form this season scoring 12 in all competitions. His intelligent play and natural striker instincts have made him a favourite with the red army.

Today the striker signed a two year deal with Aberdeen ending months of speculation of him crossing the border again. His signature will also largely affect Aberdeen’s activity in the transfer window because the Dons now need a striker for Miller rather than a replacement for.

Miller told the club website, “I’m really happy to be staying with Aberdeen for 2 years as I am very settled here and I am really enjoying playing football with this side at the moment. It has taken me a bit of time to come to this decision as I had to weigh up my other options in different places but the decision has been made and I am an Aberdeen player for the foreseeable future.”

Manager Jimmy Calderwood told the club website, “I think with Lee signing this is probably one of the most important things for Aberdeen this summer as we have a huge rebuilding project and Lee is a huge factor in this.”
