Monakana makes Dons switch

Last Updated: Wed, 23 Jul 2014 12:27

Brighton winger Jeffrey Monakana has joined Aberdeen on loan until January.

The 20-year-old signed for the Seagulls at the beginning of the year but has yet to make a first-team appearance, after being loaned out to Crawley.

Head of football communications David Burke told the official club's official website: "This is a great opportunity for Jeffrey to go to a successful, well-run club, and to play for one of the top teams in the SPL.

"He came back to us for pre-season training looking sharp and it was no surprise to us that several clubs were interested in taking him on loan.

"His best chance to break into our first-team squad is to go on loan, play as many games as he can and enjoy his time with Aberdeen, and I'm sure he can come back to us with more experience and as a better player.

"We are confident that Derek McInnes and his staff can get the best out of him and we wish Jeffrey well for his loan spell."
