Aberdeen get permit for defender Nikola Vujadinovic

Aberdeen

Aberdeen have been granted a work permit for defender Nikola Vujadinovic.

The 24-year-old Serbian-born Montenegrin had signed a loan deal from Udinese after impressing on trial at Pittodrie last week.

Vujadinovic was given a permit after a Scottish Football Association meeting at Hampden on Monday.

Dons director of football Willie Miller told his club website: "We're delighted that Nikola has been given the green light to play in the SPL."

Vujadinovic, a former Montenegro Under-21 international, joined Udinese in 2008 but was on loan to Romanians Unirea Alba Iulia last season.

We believe he will prove to be a quality signing who can play in several positions

Despite his presence in their defence, Unirea were relegated after their first season back in the Romanian top flight.

Vujadinovic was a trainee with Red Star Belgrade before moving to Rad Beograd, Zeta then CSKA Sofia.

After a season with the Bulgarian Premier League club, he won a one million euro transfer to Udinese, signing a five-year contract with the Italians.

Aberdeen concluded the paperwork for the move before the closure of the transfer window.

"We believe he will prove to be a quality signing who can play in several positions," added Miller.
