It’s been confirmed this morning that newly promoted Salford City have signed striker Adam Rooney from Scottish Premiership side Aberdeen for an undisclosed fee.
Rooney has agreed a three-year deal to move from the top division in Scotland to the fifth tier of English football.
It’s been reported that Salford City will pay Rooney 4,000-5,000 pounds a week, which was more than he was receiving at Aberdeen.

A Salford spokesman said: “Salford City agreed an undisclosed fee with Aberdeen to bring Adam Rooney to the Peninsula Stadium.
“It’s a fantastic signing and further indication, if any was needed, that the Ammies mean business yet again.
“We’d like to extend a warm welcome to Adam as the club enters yet another exciting chapter, this time in the National League.”
Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes told the club website: “We wish Adam all the very best with his new venture and it is always with a heavy heart when you lose a good player who is also a really good person.”
“Since I signed Adam four and a half years ago, he has given us nothing but good value and has been a fantastic boy to work with.”
