Mark McGhee is confident Aberdeen can strike a loan deal for Plymouth's Jim Paterson.
The Dons boss has been keen to land Paterson for the past few weeks after confirming his interest at the start of the month.
After playing a patient waiting game, McGhee feels Plymouth are willing to allow the left-back to leave on loan.
In what could be a double raid on the home park outfit, McGhee is also hoping to sign Paterson's team-mate Steve MacLean.
"I think we have the opportunity to get Jim Paterson on loan and maybe even Steve MacLean," he told RedTV.
