Kenny McLean has revealed that he never gave a thought to moving to Sevco.

The midfielder has been the subject of a long running Ibrox recruitment campaign but yesterday signed for Norwich City.

Like Scott Allan, Jamie Walker and other Sevco are big on talk but rarely come up with the goods when it comes to completing a deal in the professional manner that Celtic, Wigan and Norwich do business.

Aberdeen announced in November that McLean had turned down a new contract but as Sean Goss and Jamie Murphy arrived on loan at Ibrox McLean slipped south on a £200,000 deal.

“Recently I saw a bit of Norwich, and it excites me to come and play here,” McLean told Norwich City TV.

“The way the manager wants to play really does suit me, and I’m just looking forward to getting started. It has the right feel about it.

“I’ve always had ambitions of coming down to play in England and the Championship is an excellent league. I’ve been in Scotland my whole career and wanted something different.

“I let the manager at Aberdeen know that early on and then it’s just been about choosing the right place for me. This is perfect.

“There’s been a lot of talk about my future and taking everything into account, this felt like the right club.”

After signing for Norwich McLean has returned to Aberdeen on loan until the end of the season and will play for the Dons at Ibrox tomorrow night.

So far in the transfer window Sevco have still to spend a penny on transfer fees while attempting to offload a number of players including Bruno Alves and Josh Windass.
