Demetri Mitchell Joins Hibs!

We are delighted to announce that Demetri Mitchell has joined Hibernian FC from English Championship side Blackpool for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old, who will provide Shaun Maloney with a number of options, has put pen-to-paper on a two-and-a-half-year deal that’ll run until the summer of 2024.

Mitchell burst onto the scene at Manchester United making his senior debut in the English Premier League against Crystal Palace in 2017, before being named their Denzil Haroun Reserve Player of the Year in 2018.

Loan spells followed in the Scottish Premiership before a permanent switch to Blackpool, where he helped them achieve promotion to the second-tier of English football.

Mitchell - a quick, creative wide-man – has made 14 appearances this season, and has also been capped by England’s U16s, U17s, U18s, and U20s.

On the arrival of Mitchell, Shaun Maloney said: “I’m delighted to sign Demetri. He brings excellent attributes in different positions and will help us in both attacking and defensive situations.

“As a player, he brings real technical quality and outstanding speed, particularly in one vs one situations. My staff and I look forward to working with him.”
