MANAGER Craig Brown today warned American striker Eddie Johnson he will have to accept a short-term deal if he wants a contract with Aberdeen FC.


Brown was set to hold talks with USA international hitman Johnson as he bids to sign a goal grabber before the transfer window shuts on Wednesday.


The 27-year-old is a free agent after being released by Fulham in the summer and failing to get fixed up with another club in his homeland.


Anyone seen him play?
