Dons boss Jim Goodwin has earmarked Albanian worldwide Ramadani because the substitute for Bologna-bound Ferguson.
Ramadani, who lastly arrived on the membership yesterday following a protracted visa software course of, was signed to exchange Ferguson within the coronary heart of the Aberdeen engine room.
Ylber Ramadani has large sneakers to fill if he’s to take the place of Lewis Ferguson within the Aberdeen staff.
Given Ferguson ended final season with 16 objectives for his efforts I don’t count on Ramadani to shoulder the goalscoring burden within the Dons midfield.
However I do count on him to supply the identical vitality and management which Ferguson dropped at the staff.
Whereas Ramadani settles into his new environment I’ll have an interest to see how Ferguson does in Italy.
It’s a unique type of play there and I hope it really works out for him.
Serie A shall be a really completely different problem for a combative midfielder however clearly Ferguson has seemed on the success Aaron Hickey has had there and believes he can do the identical.
I want him the perfect of luck.
By my reckoning the sale of Ferguson, added to the proceeds of Calvin Ramsay’s transfer to Liverpool and the bonus from Scott McKenna’s promotion-winning season with Nottingham Forest has generated round £8million to the Pittodrie coffers to date this summer season.
Goodwin has had roughly £1million of that cash to date however I might hope there’s nonetheless a good portion coming the supervisor’s approach within the weeks forward.
The Dons have strengthened their assault, defender and goalkeeping choices however I’d nonetheless prefer to see some extra creativity within the facet and people type of positions are those which usually require probably the most funding.
With Christian Ramirez after scoring each objectives within the Premier Sports activities Cup win at Peterhead on Sunday, and the approaching arrival of Bojan Miovski to observe, Aberdeen may very well be accomplished with discovering a supporting forged to furnish their two strikers with the possibilities they may crave.
However all issues thought-about Sunday was a good begin for the Dons at Balmoor.
A uncommon clear sheet, of which there have been valuable few final season, an away win which was even rarer, and a successful begin for a brand new captain represents day’s work for the membership.
