Hibernian can confirm that Calum Antell has agreed a new one year contract and the young goalkeeper says he is excited about continuing his development at Easter Road.
The 20-year-old, who was born in Abergavenny, but raised in Ebbw Vale, originally joined Hibernian in June 2010 as an Academy player before graduating into the professional ranks last summer.
In his rookie year as a professional, Antell, a former Wales under-19 internationalist, was loaned out to East Stirling and was a phenomenal success with The Shire; recording over 50 appearances, captaining the team and winning two Player of the Year awards.
Now, after agreeing a new deal, Antell says he is looking forward to staying with Hibernian and, after coming on as a substitute at East Fife, reveals he wants to experience as much first team football as possible.
Antell said: "I'm really pleased to have agreed my new contract and I'm looking forward to the next year with Hibs.
"Last year was a real learning curve for me and I felt I learned a massive amount during my time at East Stirling - it helped me to develop as a goalkeeper.
"Now I'm aiming to play as much as I can for Hibs and hopefully I will get some game-time during our overseas tour. I'm keen to learn as much as I can from Scott Thomson (goalkeeper coach) and also from Ben (Williams), so that I can become a better keeper."
