Hibs complete signing of Jorge Claros

Last updated : 31 January 2012 By Steve Forbes

Hibs boss Pat Fenlon has just completed his second signing of the day, with the exciting capture of Jorge Claros.

The 26-year-old has spent the last two weeks on trial with Rangers, but the Ibrox club had an offer knocked back, and couldn't afford to sign the player.

Midfielder Claros then headed along the M8 and took part in a closed doors match with Carlisle at Hibs East Mains training facility, and showed his quality.

The 29 times capped Honduran international has signed a 12 month loan deal at Easter Road.

Speaking to the official Hibs website, he said:

"I am happy to be here at Hibernian," Carlos told Hibernian's official website. "I have been treated very well since I arrived in Edinburgh.

"Now I hope to give the right results on the pitch for the team. I have now been in Scotland for two weeks and feel I have learned a lot about Scottish football.

"The game is very fast over here and I am looking forward to playing in the SPL. The Scottish fans are very passionate about football.

"Everyone has made me feel welcome during my time here and I am also very thankful to my good friend Emilio Izaguirre (Celtic player), who has made me feel at home in Scotland as I do in Honduras."


A fantastic signing for the Hibees and a statement of intent from Pat Fenlon.
