Aberdeen will have six trialists on show over the weekend as Mark McGhee continues his search for new players as he rebuilds his squad for the start of the season.


All six are likely to get a run out at either of the Dons first pre-season matches against Fraserburgh on Saturday (3.00pm) or Peterhead on Sunday (2.00pm).


A number of them have been with the Dons this week at training.


The six players on show are:


Conor Okus - Aberdeen took the former West Ham midfielder on trial when the players returned for pre-season last week. The 18 year old is a central midfielder. Conor is a product of the West Ham Academy and was part of their youth team last season.
