"I'm very happy, I've been introduced to the lads and looking forward to getting some minutes here," the 29-year-old said.

"That's my biggest motivation, Aberdeen is a great city and a nice club but I wasn't getting the minutes I wanted to.

"I'm ready to go. I see myself as someone who makes others around me better."

A graduate of PSV Eindhoven’s academy, Ojo has played more than 200 senior games in his career including for Scunthorpe, where his first goal was against Latics in a 2-1 defeat at Glanford Park in October 2017.
