Jack MacKenzie has signed a new contract with Aberdeen.

The 20-year-old defender broke into the first team last season and has impressed sufficiently to earn an extension to his contract.

MacKenzie, who has made 20 appearances and scored one goal for Aberdeen, made his return to the senior squad last weekend after recovering from an ankle injury. He previously had a loan spell at Forfar Athletic and has been with the Dons since the age of nine. He is a product of the AFC Youth Academy and the SFA Performance School at Hazlehead and was captain of the club’s development team.

“He has earned this extension and I look forward to seeing his continued progress here at the club”
