Aberdeen have signed Finland international Richard Jensen on a three-year-deal.

The 27-year-old defender, who has eight international caps, joins from Polish side Górnik Zabrze for an undisclosed fee.

He also captained the Finland under-21s on 15 occassions.

The Dons confirmed the deal on the eve of their Europa League play-off against Swedish side BK Hacken.

In a statement released on Wednesday Barry Robson said he was delighted to get the deal over the line.

He said: “It’s no secret that we’ve been looking to strengthen our defensive options, particularly on the left side.

“We’ve tracked Richard for some time but weren’t sure if we were going to be able to make a deal happen, so I am delighted we have been able to get It over the line with Górnik.

“He is a strong competitor and demonstrated his leadership qualities having been a captain in the past. He is predominantly a left-centre back and equally comfortable in a back 3 or back 4.

“His quality on the ball and running capacity means he’s well suited for how we want to play, and he’ll be a strong addition for the club.”

Jensen, who is the club’s eleventh summer signing, will wear the number five shirt at Pittodrie.
