Councillors will consider two options for Aberdeen FC's new stadium

Aberdeen councillors have deferred a decision on the location of a new home for Aberdeen Football Club until the next full meeting of the council.

Land to the south of the city - Loirston Loch in Nigg - is the preferred location of two options for the new 30,000-seat community stadium.

The alternative site of Kings Links was deemed too small and expensive.

The club has claimed staying at Pittodrie - the home of the Dons for more than a century - is not an option.

Councillors have deferred a vote on the site until the next full meeting of the local authority.

A series of feasibility studies have been carried out.
