City complete deal for Kenny McLean

22 January 2018

Norwich City have completed the signing of midfielder Kenny McLean from Aberdeen on a three-and-a-half year contract for an undisclosed fee.

The 26-year-old midfielder will return to the Scottish Premiership side on loan until the end of the season.

McLean joined Aberdeen from St Mirren in February 2015, and has made 135 appearances for the Dons to date, scoring 18 times.

He has also earned two international caps for Scotland, playing 90 minutes against The Netherlands in their most recent fixture towards the end of last year.

"Norwich has the right feel about it," McLean told Norwich City TV in an exclusive interview.

"I’ve met people at the club and it just seemed this was the place for me to come. After watching them on the pitch, it seems perfect for the style I want to play.

"The manager’s philosophy suits me and the club is right for me at this time of my career. It's good to have a pre-season in the summer with the new team and with the manager.

"I’ll need to adapt to the way he wants to play, and that takes time so doing that in pre-season is right for me."

On working with McLean in the near future, City boss Daniel Farke added: "Kenny is a player who is really flexible.

"He’s full of technical ability with a high passing quality and he’s able to score and assist. He’s a player we really like."
