Scott Vernon believes Nigerian trialist Daniel Uchechi would be a good addition to the Aberdeen squad if Craig Brown decides to offer the striker a deal.
Uchechi is currently training with the SPL club after he was released by League One side Sheffield Wednesday back in November.
He can also play on the wing and forward Vernon is confident that Uchechi would provide the Pittodrie club with a different dimension if he signs.
"He is the type of player that we haven't got," said Vernon. "He can play as a winger and dribbles a bit more than the players we have.
"He has good feet and good skills and I'm sure he will be a good addition if he stays."
Meanwhile, Vernon is confident that Kari Arnason will continue to give his all for Aberdeen after the Icelandic midfielder rejected the offer of a contract extension.
Vernon, who recently signed a new deal, added: "We don't talk about it too much in the dressing rooms because we have a job to do but obviously you hear things on the radio and in the press.
"He is a good player and has had a really good influence on us as a team. It is his prerogative to do as he pleases and we can't blame the lad.
"I know Arnie and there is no doubt that if he stays he will put in 100% every game. He is that type of lad."
