Aberdeen's Brown seeking loan striker from Prem clubs

Aberdeen manager Craig Brown is on the hunt for a new striker, holding talks with Premier League clubs to find the type of player he is looking for.

The Dons boss, who also has Mikael Nicoise and Michael Woods on trial, says he will continue to keep in touch with English top flight clubs leading up to their squad cut-off date at the end of August.

"There is no harm in looking and that's what we were doing with the two lads at Peterhead (trial match)," Brown explained in the Daily Record.

"I'm happy to do that because you might get lucky and pick up a real gem.

"But we have specific targets in mind as far as strikers go.

"The English Premier League clubs must cut their squads down to 25 by the end of August.

"The top sides such as Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal have as many as 30 candidates for those places and that's before they have finished making new signings.

"I've already spoken to a lot of the managers there to ask about the possibility of getting anyone on loan."
