Aberdeen have sealed loan deals for Florian Kamberi, Fraser Hornby, and Callum Hendry in a deadline day overhaul of their forward options.

Former Hibernian and Rangers striker Kamberi joins from Swiss side St Gallen, while Hornby and Hendry arrive from Reims and St Johnstone respectively.

The deals are to the end of the season.

The moves come as strikers Bruce Anderson and Curtis Main join Sam Cosgrove in leaving Pittodrie.

Anderson, 23, has joined Hamilton Academical for the remainder of the campaign while Curtis Main has left Pittodrie for Shrewsbury, after Cosgrove joined Birmingham City for a reported fee of £2m.

Aberdeen also confirmed that forward Scott Wright will depart early for Rangers for around £175,000, with Ross McCrorie's transfer to Pittodrie also made permanent three months early in exchange.

After Aberdeen drew 0-0 for the fourth time in eight games against Livingston on Saturday, boss Derek McInnes said the club needed a new number nine.

The Pittodrie manager says Scotland under-21 international Hornby, who moved to France from Everton last summer will bring a "goal threat", while adding that Hendry is a "physical presence".

Both will be available to face Livingston in the Scottish Premiership on Tuesday, but Kamberi - who also had a loan spell at Ibrox - must await a work permit and so could make his Aberdeen debut against former club Hibs at Easter Road on Saturday.

"Florian has shown his quality in our league over a period of time and again, once we knew there was an opportunity to get him, we pursued it quite vigorously," McInnes said.
