Bologna FC 1909 have signed Lewis Ferguson from Aberdeen FC, in the Premiership. The club announced: “Bologna FC 1909 are delighted to announce that Lewis Ferguson has joined the Club on a permanent basis from Aberdeen Football Club.”
The Dons confirmed the same, announcing: “Aberdeen FC today confirms highly rated midfielder and Scotland International, Lewis Ferguson, has joined Serie A side Bologna F.C. for an undisclosed fee.
“Everyone at Aberdeen FC wishes Lewis all the very best in his future career.”
Aberdeen’s manager Jim Goodwin said: “We want to be a Club that is an attractive option for young players who know they can come here, get important game time, train in excellent facilities, and have opportunities to further their development.
“Lewis has been a fantastic player for Aberdeen. He became an integral part of the dressing room in recent seasons. And he has earned the right to explore other options.
“The Club has helped his development massively. He’s played an impressive number of first team games for his age. Not only domestically but in Europe as well, and recently made his debut for his country.
“There’s no doubt Lewis has made a brave move; opting to go abroad and face the challenge of football in a different country. But I am sure he will be a success.”
