Aberdeen will sign Tommy Wright from Darlington ahead of the new season subject to the striker passing a medical at Pittodrie. Dons boss Jimmy Calderwood has revealed that he has agreed terms with the League Two club and the player over a move to the Scottish Premier League, but that Wright is currently troubled by a minor injury. "With regards to the Tommy Wright situation, he had a small injury towards the end of last season in his knee and the doctor has taken a look at him and we are going to get him back in a couple of weeks to look at him again," he told the club's official website. "He is in the middle of his rehab at the moment so it is difficult for the medical staff to fully access him. "As far as we are concerned, Tommy will be joining us before the beginning of the season but he won't be travelling with us to Holland, although we will be in regular contact with him. "In these kind of situations you can never risk even the smallest of niggles and that is why the deal is not signed and sealed today. "Tommy will bring a lot of strength to the team as he is a big lad. He is a good holder of the ball and is very strong in the air."
