Hamilton Academical FC is delighted to announce it has reached an agreement with Aberdeen FC for the transfer of Finnish midfielder Miko Virtanen on a two-year deal.
The Finn signed his Accies contract today and trained with his teammates ahead of Saturday’s match with Morton.
The 22-year-old joins the club following previous spells with Everton and Aberdeen.
Head Coach Brian Rice said: “We are delighted to sign a player of Miko’s quality. He is a young player who wants to play football week in, week out. He knows what is expected of him here and we are looking forward to seeing him on the pitch.”
Speaking exclusively to the club’s website Virtanen said: “I am delighted to sign for this club, I know they have a history of improving players and that’s why I choose to come here.
“Last year Bruce was here and he spoke really highly of the club and from my first day here it’s easy to see why.
“I have spoken with the gaffer and the coaches and I know what is expected of me. The hard work starts now and I can’t wait to get out on the pitch with the lads.”
The club would like to place on record our gratitude to Aberdeen for their help in bringing Miko to the club.
