Aberdeen enter talks with midfielder Lee Hendrie

Hendrie made only nine appearances in his season with Derby

Aberdeen have confirmed that they are in signing talks with veteran English midfielder Lee Hendrie.

The 33-year-old is currently without a club after leaving Derby County.

Hendrie, who began his career at Aston Villa and has one England cap, ended last season on loan to Brighton in League One.

He had also been on the books of Sheffield United and had loan spells with Stoke City, Leicester City and Blackpool before joining Derby in 2009.

However, he made only nine appearances for Championship club Derby - five as a substitute - before playing eight times for Brighton.

Meanwhile, Aberdeen are thought to have joined Hearts in expressing an interest in Paul Hartley.

The veteran midfielder wants a return to Scotland and is poised to leave Bristol City after a season with the Championship club.

Six trialists also played in weekend games against Fraserburgh and Peterhead.

Yoann Folly, who was freed by Dagenham and Redbridge, Pakistan cap Adnan Ahmed, who has left Ferencvaros, Jeff Smith, released by Darlington, and former West Ham United youth player Conor Okus are all midfielders.

Wales Under-21 international Grant Basey, released by Charlton Athletic, and Robbie Williams, who was not offered a new contract by Huddersfield Town, are defenders.
