LIAM HENDERSON JOINS HIBERNIAN ON LOAN
Hibernian FC today confirmed that Liam Henderson is to join the Club for the season.
The talented Scotland under-19 midfielder will be at Easter Road on a one-year loan deal.
At the same time, the Club confirmed that Scott Allan has been transferred to Celtic for an undisclosed fee.
Speaking exclusively to hibernianfc.co.uk, Head Coach Alan Stubbs said: “Liam is one of the best and most talented young players in Scotland.
“He’s a good, modern midfielder who can score goals, and he has played first team football for both Celtic and Rosenborg. He’s an exciting player I rate really highly and I am delighted that he is coming.
“While we were prepared to allow Scott to run down his contract and play his part in an important season for us, this opportunity provides a really good outcome for everyone.
“Scott gets a move as he wanted, while we bring in a high quality player who is motivated to join us as we push for promotion.
"I’d like to say I am delighted with the support I’ve had from Rod, Leeann and the Board, and I’d also like to record that Scott has been a pleasure to work with. We wish him all the best for the future.”
Chief Executive Leeann Dempster said: “Scott goes with our best wishes. Alan is happy with the outcome. We have brought in a talented player on a loan for this vital season, plus a fee which will help us strengthen the squad for the challenging and exciting season that lies ahead.”
