We are delighted to announce that talented young defender Harry Clarke has joined us on loan from Arsenal.
The 20-year-old’s loan from the English Premier League side will run for 18 months, however, Arsenal do have break clauses in the summer and January 2023.
The talented youngster is comfortable at wing-back, full-back, and as a centre-half, and will be embarking on his third loan spell away from the Gunners.
He impressed at Oldham Athletic in the fourth-tier of English football and at Ross County earlier this season making 17 appearances in the cinch Premiership, scoring three and setting up two for his teammates.
On the arrival of Clarke, Hibs Manager Shaun Maloney said: “Harry has very good technical attributes in both attacking and defensive actions, and I’m really pleased we’ve been able to secure him for the Club.
“He will bring an exciting energy and speed in both areas, and I have no doubt he’ll be a big asset for us going forward.
“In speaking to him, I know how hungry he is to succeed and be a part of this Club and over the coming days I’m very much looking forward to working with him.”
Harry is the third exciting young talent to join Shaun Maloney’s squad since the start of the January transfer window. Like Elias and Ewan, the defender adds hunger and an attacking talent to the squad.
