Aberdeen have made five signings ahead of the new season.

Macedonian international striker Bojan Miovski is to join Aberdeen from MTK Budapest and has agreed a four-year contract with the club.

Miovski will make the move to Pittodrie after he has completed the UK immigration process and becomes Jim Goodwin’s fifth signing of the summer as he revamps the Dons squad.

Aberdeen have paid an undisclosed fee for the 22-year-old forward, who scored nine times in 29 appearances for the Hungarian side last season.

He’ll be reunited with midfielder Ylber Ramadani, who moved from MTK to the Dons earlier this summer.

Aberdeen manager Goodwin said that he has given his scouting team a specific idea of the kind of striker he wanted to add to his squad, and said Miovski fits the bill.

“We’ve been keeping a close eye on Bojan for several months now and have fought off some stiff competition to secure the player,” he told Aberdeen’s website.

“He’s a striker with all the key attributes needed to be a success in the Scottish Premiership. He’s got pace, power and fantastic movement which enables him to get numerous goalscoring opportunities on a consistent basis.

“He fits the profile of striker I asked Darren Mowbray and his scouting team to find when we discussed our recruitment back in February and he is another good example of how we are implementing our overall recruitment strategy at the Club.

“He’ll be 23 tomorrow but is already highly regarded within the national set up of North Macedonia who themselves were very unfortunate not to qualify for the World Cup in Qatar this year.

“We’re delighted to welcome Bojan to Pittodrie and look forward to working with him over the next four years.”
