ETHAN Ross has become Dunfermline Athletic's first signing of the decade after arriving on loan from Aberdeen today (Friday).

The 18-year-old has joined the club for the second half of the season and is expected to feature in the Pars squad for this weekend's Championship fixture against Ayr United.

The youngster made his first start for Aberdeen in October and was named the club's Development Player of the Year for 2018/19.

Ross has also been capped for Scotland's Under 17, Under 18 and Under 19 sides in recent years.

He is the fifth loan signing of the season for Stevie Crawford after previously bringing in Norwich City's Josh Coley, Kilmarnock's Greg Kiltie, and Hearts pair Anthony McDonald and Harry Cochrane.
