Delighted to have my doubts as to whether this move would happen firmly quashed. I am very impressed that Hibs have managed to pull this deal off and pleased that the player himself seems to be putting his development ahead of his bank balance (although I imagine the deal he's on will be a good one). Well done Hibs.
That penalty against Rangers...wow. Every time I watch it back...some hit it was. He is a classy player who has realised that if he puts the time and effort in at Hibs then he'll be rewarded hugely later in his career. If he keeps developing, no exaggeration, EPL could be his eventual destination. He is strong, fast, decent touch and decent feet. He needs to increase consistency and be a bit more tactically aware on the pitch but he has all the ingredients to go far in the game.
I'll contain my exuberance for now, if we get some of the signings touted on here and a few more then I'll lose it, not been this positive about an approaching season in a long while. It will be a tough season but it just feels like we are putting the icing/finishing touches on a strong squad. Nice place to be in.
