Aberdeen swoop for Man City starlet Vidal

Manchester City's teenage defender Javan Vidal has joined Aberdeen on loan for the rest of the season.

The 19-year-old told RedTV: "I've just been waiting to get it done. There was a little hitch - I thought I might not be coming. But I'm delighted to be here now.

"I'm an attacking full-back, I like to get forward and create chances for strikers and midfielders.

"I can defend as well so it will be quite exciting for the fans."

He continued: "Scottish football is massive, to be fair, a very good standard.

"Celtic and Rangers: you've just got to look at their European success to know how big it is."

Vidal, who has yet to play for City's first team, added: "Reserve games are a good standard but there's nothing better than playing in front of fans on the big stage.

"Hopefully I'll be knocking on the first-team door."
