Aberdeen have confirmed the early signing of St Johnstone winger Matty Kennedy on a three-and-a-half-year deal.

Kennedy, 25, had already agreed a three-year contract to join the club at the end of the season.

But Aberdeen and St Johnstone have agreed a deal to allow the player to make the switch now.

"He is the type of player who can really help make the difference for us," said Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes.

"I'm pleased we managed to reach an agreement with St Johnstone to bring Matty to the club now."

Kennedy has scored five goals in 21 appearances this season, and is available for Aberdeen's meeting with St Mirren in the Premiership on Sunday.
