Rooney set for a move
Date published: 22 January 2014
ADAM Rooney is set for a permanent transfer to Aberdeen, after gaining permission to talk to the Scottish Premier League club.
The 25-year-old striker, who arrived at Boundary Park in the summer on a two-year contract, has endured a tough time.
Rooney’s form has been poor and he has scored only seven goals, four in the league.
Last week he missed a good chance to level the game at Walsall as a sub, and minutes later saw his penalty kick saved. Rooney was then an unused substitute at Port Vale at the weekend.
Manager Lee Johnson has decided to let the Dublin-born marksman depart to free funds for a new marksman to boost Athletic’s paltry goal record.
Former Inverness striker Rooney enjoyed a prolific spell north of the border when he played for Inverness, netting 53 goals across three seasons.
