We are delighted to announce that James Scott has joined Hibernian on a loan deal from Hull City, subject to international clearance.

The 20 year-old striker’s loan will run until the end of the 2021/22 campaign.

“I’m really happy to bring James to Hibernian for the season,” said Jack Ross. “He is a young player with enormous potential, and we believe we can help him achieve that, which in turn means he can deliver for us on the pitch.”

“James is able to play anywhere across the front line and I am excited to both welcome him to the club and begin working with him.

“Finally, the support from Ron and the senior management at the club is greatly appreciated as we continue to try and drive forward.”

Scott, who was born in Glasgow, came through Motherwell’s academy and made his debut for the club aged 18 in the cinch Premiership.

His first senior goal came in April 2019 as Motherwell beat Dundee 4-3 at home.

The 2019/20 campaign was his most fruitful in front of goal. He scored six goals in 28 games before making the switch to the English Championship to join Hull City. His debut for the Tigers came on in June 2020 and he scored his first goal for them a week later, a well-placed header against Birmingham City.

He’s also a Scotland Under-21s international and has earned two caps for his country featuring against San Marino and Croatia in the Euro U21 qualifiers.

The young striker will wear the number 25 as he begins the next chapter of his career.
