Elias Melkersen was Shaun Maloney's first signing as Hibernian Manager joining for a significant undisclosed fee from FK Bodø/Glimt!
The young striker joined the Club for a significant undisclosed fee, putting pen-to-paper on a long-term deal that runs until the summer of 2026.
Melkersen is one of the brightest talents coming out of Norway and can play anywhere across the front three positions in Shaun Maloney’s system.
Since turning professional, the young striker has scored 23 goals in 37 games, and during a loan spell for Ranheim in the Obosligaen, the second-tier of Norwegian football, he averaged a goal every four shots!
He has also scored two goals in just three games for Norway’s Under-20s.
