Dons' Calderwood confirms stay with new deal

Aberdeen manager Jimmy Calderwood ended speculation about his future at Pittodrie today by pledging himself to the club until the summer of 2011.

The Dons' management team of Calderwood, Jimmy Nicholl and Sandy Clark agreed new deals that will see them stay in the north-east for the next three-and-a-half years.

The news will placate worried Aberdeen fans who feared an exodus from Pittodrie in the summer.

Midfielders Barry Nicholson and Chris Clark have turned down new deals and it was confirmed that defender Michael Hart has signed a pre-contract agreement with Preston North End

But the news of Calderwood's new deal came days after defender Zander Diamond signed a three-and-a-half-year deal and with his future addressed, the Pittodrie boss is looking to bolster his squad during the transfer window.

'We would just like everyone to understand just how much we love the club and the city,' he said.

'There may have been a lot of speculation and a couple of things got held up but they have been ironed out and I am very happy as this is a great place to live and a great place to work,' he said.

'I think, and hope, we have the money to bring in some quality players.

'I know it is almost impossible for us to match the likes of the Old Firm and Hearts but we can still make good selections.

'There has been a steady improvement in the team and I feel the directors have the drive to take things further and this is important for the management squad.

'We will be working hard to strengthen the squad as you know a couple of the lads could be leaving.'

After days of negativity surrounding the club, Aberdeen's director of football, Willie Miller, was glad to get his management trio tied up on new deals.

He said: 'We are delighted with the news and we were always confident we would have a positive outcome to the situation.

'Obviously I have the opinion that Jimmy has done an absolutely fantastic job at the club and has brought back stability, and this season in particular we have been extremely successful.

'I am happy with what Jimmy is doing and I have backed him for the last three years and it is great to have the team, all three of them, on board for the foreseeable future.'
