Signing Freddie Woodman would give Aberdeen great depth, but would he get games?

As reported by The Daily Record, Aberdeen are one of the clubs interested in bringing Freddie Woodman back to the Scottish Premiership this summer.

What’s the story?

Aberdeen fans will be familiar with Woodman of course, with the young goalkeeper spending time on loan at the club last season, filling in for established number Joe Lewis for eight appearances.

Now he could be set for a return north.

That’s according to The Record, who say that Aberdeen, Hearts and Hibs are all interested in his services this summer on a loan basis.

Rated at £450,000 by Transfermarkt, should the Dons make another move for the impressive prospect, or stick with the goalkeepers they have?

Would he be a good addition for Aberdeen?

While Woodman impressed on loan last season, and is showing great progress in the England national team’s youth set-up, do Aberdeen really need to have him around in the new season?

Joe Lewis has recovered from a knee operation and back-up goalkeeper Danny Rogers signed a new contract in May, with Derek McInnes claiming he was a big part of his plans going forward.

Three goalkeepers are nice to have and would provide great depth but Woodman is arguably good enough for first team football at Scottish Premiership level, so is unlikely to be happy sitting on the bench at Pittodrie.

Perhaps their transfer efforts would perhaps be best focused elsewhere.
