Aberdeen midfielder Dante Polvara has signed a new three-year-deal at the club.

The 23-year-old New Yorker signed for the Pittodrie side in January 2022 after being named the best college player in the USA in 2021.

His first team appearances have been limited in Scotland and he has only played 17 games over the last couple of seasons.

But six of them have come already this season as he finds himself back in contention under Barry Robson after a short loan term at Charleston Battery stateside.

He has now committed his future to Aberdeen until 2026 after putting pen to paper on a new contract on Thursday.

Manager Barry Robson welcomed the news.

He said: “Dante has got a real opportunity ahead of him here at the club.

“He’s got two great feet, he’s a good size and he is a real athlete due to his running power. These are all really strong attributes for a young player to have.

“He’s still got improvements to be made in his game but if he continues his positive development as he is then he can go on to become a top player.”

Polvara added: “The manager and the rest of the staff have voiced their belief in me since day one which made this an easy decision.

“I hope to help the team as much as possible and make those who have believed in me throughout this journey so far proud of my development as a player.”
