The 6ft 4in Austrian youth international started his career with Rapid Vienna before heading to Germany and is looking to secure a deal with Derek McInnes’ side after Danny Rogers headed to St Mirren on loan.

McInnes has been left with no back up to regular No 1 Joe Lewis apart from under-20 goalkeeper David Craddock who has not played for the first team.

Gessl flew in to Scotland yesterday afternoon and will start working with the Dons this morning..
