Goalkeeper Nicky Weaver has joined Aberdeen on a six-month contract.

Weaver, whose previous clubs included Manchester City and Charlton Athletic had a previous spell in Scotland with Dundee United in season 2009-10.

"To get such an experienced and talented goalkeeper is important, I'm delighted to get Nicky on board," said Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes.

"We had a few avenues and other options but we feel with the signing of Nicky we've recruited well and Nicky's eagerness and willingness to come here was pivotal."
