Aberdeen to take Capaldi on trial
Craig Brown will run the rule over Tony Capaldi this week.
Aberdeen could be set to add another defender to their squad after lining up a trial for Tony Capaldi. The former Plymouth and Cardiff player has travelled to Pittodrie in the hopes of winning a deal, according to the Evening Express.
New Dons boss Craig Brown is looking to add to his squad during the January transfer window and the 22-times capped Northern Ireland international could become his first signing.
Capaldi is currently a free agent, having only played three matches during a short term deal at Morecambe this season. The 29-year old left Cardiff City at the end of his contract in the summer and had been linked with a move to Hearts back in August, with Crystal Palace and former club Plymouth Argyle also expressing interest.
Brown has confirmed that he is likely to offer a contract to another trialist, former Leyton Orient defender Myles Anderson. The manager said that any deal for Anderson would be to give them an extended look at the teenager, rather than to put him in line for a first team place.
"This is a young lad who has just come up to train with us really,” Brown said. “We will probably sign him until the end of the season but not with a view to first team action.
“I want to emphasise that. He is not ready for SPL action and nothing like it at the moment.
“He is a guy we will bring here till the end of the season and see how he develops then we will talk about a contract that will put him in frame for first team duty
