New Aberdeen manager Craig Brown will try to make former Livingston full-back David McNamee his first Dons signing, reports BBC Sport. The 30-year-old had been training with Brown's former club Motherwell with a view to a move there.
The Dons' only senior full-back, Ricky Foster, is on loan at Rangers and the club has been struggling to fill the right- and left-back positions.
McNamee started his career at St Mirren in 1997 and signed for Blackburn rovers two years later. However, he failed to break into the first team and joined Livingston in 2002.
He has since had spells at Coventry City and Plymouth Argyle where he was released last summer.
