Scottish Premiership club Aberdeen have completed the signing of Preston North End striker Stevie May for an undisclosed fee according to the Daily Record.

The 24-year-old Perth born frontman was deemed to be surplus to requirements at Deepdale after struggling to break into The Lilywhites starting XI during the past two seasons.

It has been reported that May has signed a four-year deal at Pittodrie and the player could make his Aberdeen debut in their Scottish Premiership match against Ross County at the Global Energy Stadium in Dingwall on Saturday.

May started his career at hometown club St Johnstone where he went on to score 32 goals in 80 outings for The Saints. The player was named in the PFA Scotland Premiership Team of the Year in 2013/2014 while he was crowned the SFWA Young Player of the Year in the same season. The striker also spent time on loan with Alloa Athletic and Hamilton Academical during his time at McDiarmid Park.

In August 2014, May joined Sky Bet Championship club Sheffield Wednesday on a four-year deal however the player netted just seven times in his first campaign with The Owls and joined Preston North End a little over 12 months later.

May featured on just 13 occasions for The Lilywhites, scoring once with the player being hampered by injuries and suffering from poor form and the Lancashire club made the decision to end the striker’s Deepdale career by letting him return north of the border.
