Aberdeen have signed Northern Ireland right-back Ryan McLaughlin on loan from Liverpool.

The 20-year-old made nine appearances on loan at Barnsley last season and joins the Dons until January.

Manager Derek McInnes told the club’s official website: “I’m really pleased we’ve managed to bring Ryan to the club. He’s a player who has always impressed us and will give us good options in the months ahead.

“Ryan has the quality needed to play with us at Aberdeen and we are looking forward to working closely with him.

“Ryan’s eagerness to join us over others also gives us great encouragement.”
