Wolves striker Austin Samuels joined Aberdeen on loan during August.

Samuels made his first Dons appearance in Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Ross County.

The 20-year-old started the match on the left of a front three but manager Stephen Glass said after the game that he was excited by Samuels’ debut display.

ULTIMATE XI Of Players Signed This Summer

Glass was impressed

 “Austin did really well, he was positive, direct, he even turned a couple of clearances into opportunities for us which is a little bit different to what we’ve had before.

“That pace and that energy up front was exciting for us, he’s a real forward thinking player. We are a work in progress.


“We’ve let in more goals than we’d like, but we’ve looked more threatening as a team compared with what was happening at the end of last season. We’re more positive as a team and it’s important that that continues.

“We’re unbeaten in the league and we’ll try to maintain that as long as we can while trying to win a bigger share. We want to score more goals and keep them out at the other end.”

Samuels has a chance to force his way into the side on a regular basis and the next step after a promising debut is scoring goals.

He’s made a good start from the sounds of it, and consistency will be key now.

Aberdeen have an option to buy the forward at the end of the loan spell, which will ultimately decide whether the loan has been a success or not.
