Transfer news: Aussie keeper to Scottish club

Olyroos goalkeeper Aaron Lennox is the latest Aussie to sign for a Scottish Premier League club, joining Aberdeen until the end of the season.

Lennox has been playing in England’s Conference South with Hayes & Yeading United this season after being released from Queens Park Rangers at the end of the last campaign.

But the 22-year-old, who was a part of the Olyroos squad which was at the AFC U-23 Championships in Doha this month, has secured a moved to Pittodrie.

Lennox is the second keeper to join the club during the January transfer window after Aberdeen lost gloveman Danny Ward, whose loan deal was ended so he could return to Liverpool.

It’s understood Lennox will start in the club’s Development squad before pushing for a first-team spot in the SPL.

He joins the likes of Tom Rogic (Celtic), Jackson Irvine (Ross County) and Scott McDonald (Motherwell) currently in the Scottish top flight.
