ABERDEEN have announced the signing of Jay Emmanuel-Thomas from Livingston.

More commonly referred to as JET, the 30-year-old forward will join the Pittodrie side on a two-year-deal when the transfer window begins in June. Livi will be due a fee due for the move.

The move comes on the same day Aberdeen striker Bruce Anderson signed a pre-contract deal with Livingston.

The forward, a product of the Arsenal academy, cemented himself in Livingston’s starting 11 in the second half of last season. He has also had spells in England with QPR, Bristol City and Ipswich Town.

“It feels great to be an Aberdeen player,” JET commented.

“Within football, Aberdeen has always had a very good reputation and to be involved with such a big Club is a great feeling.

“Based on games I’ve played against Aberdeen, watching the style of play, what the set-up is like behind the scenes and knowing where the manager wants to take the Club, of course it was something I wanted to be part of.”

Stephen Glass adds JET’s signatures to Scott Brown’s and Declan Gallagher’s, both of whom will join up with Aberdeen in the summer.

“We’re pleased to add Jay to our squad. His arrival is a sign of intent and marks the first piece of the jigsaw as we look to re-build our front line.

“He brings a lot of attacking flexibility and can play in numerous positions as we look to add firepower to the group we have here.

“We’re working diligently behind the scenes and assessing players who fit the profile we are looking for here at Aberdeen.

“It is imperative we take this opportunity to add the necessary quality of players and I look forward to enhancing our attacking options in the coming weeks.”
