ABERDEEN'S bid to sign Curtis Spiteri has hit a stumbling block, leaving Steve Paterson facing something of a goalkeeping problem.

The United States shot-stopper underwent a successful trial with The Dons, but any move is now on hold until the New Year.

To the frustration of the Portland Timbers man, he has had to return to America after failing to obtain a work permit.

With Ryan Esson sidelined with a thigh injury, Paterson only has rookie David Hutton as cover for David Preece.
