Aberdeen have signed Manchester City midfielder Chidi Nwakali on loan for the rest of the season.

The 21-year-old Nigeria midfielder is hoping to force his way into his country's World Cup squad and has joined the Dons at their winter training camp in Dubai.

Nwakali spent time on loan at Norwegian side Sogndal in 2017 and Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes is pleased to have brought him to Pittodrie. 

He told the club website: "Manchester City have been very keen for Chidi to get some competitive game time and it’s a deal we’ve been working on for a couple of months now, so I am delighted to welcome Chidi to the club.”
