Aberdeen have completed the sale of midfielder Ylber Ramadani to Serie A side U.S Lecce for an undisclosed fee. 

The Albanian spent a season at Pittodrie after joining from Hungarian side MTK Budapest and played a key role as Aberdeen recorded a third-place finish and secured group stage European football for this season.

“Despite only being here for a season, Ylber’s commitment and desire to do his best for the club was clear for all to see,” Aberdeen manager Barry Robson said.  

“I’ve no doubt his experience at Aberdeen, and within the Scottish game, will have made Ylber a better player and prepare him for the challenges which lie ahead in Italy.”

Aberdeen have seen a number of players leave the club over the summer and have brought in eight new faces as they prepare for the new campaign.
