We are delighted to complete the permanent signing of Ghanaian international Jojo Wollacott!
The goalkeeper joins Hibs from English League One side Charlton Athletic for undisclosed terms and has put pen-to-paper on a three-year deal.
Straight off the back of being on international duty with the Black Stars, Jojo has joined up with Goalkeeping Coach Stuart Garden and his teammates to prepare for the upcoming cinch Premiership campaign.
Having come through Bristol City’s Academy, Wollacott has recently been competing in the third and fourth tiers of English football. He made 20 appearances for Charlton Athletic last season.
Alongside football, he’s also been competing regularly on the international front with Ghana, so far he’s earned 11 senior caps.
Hibernian FC Manager Lee Johnson commented: “We’re delighted to bring Jojo to the Club and I’m looking forward to working with him again.
“He’s a player I’ve known for some time and it’s great to see that he’s starting to fulfil his potential. He now has over 100 games under his belt and has played on the international stage with Ghana.
“He’s an athletic, brave, and confident goalkeeper, and with big competitions coming up it’s important we’re strong in the goalkeeping department.”
