Hibs in talks to sign Norwich City defender Rocky Bushiri

Last updated : 09 January 2022 By Steve Forbes

Hibs have tonight been linked with a move for Norwich City defender Rocky Bushiri.

The 6ft 2in Belgian defender has been rumoured to have been on the Hibees radar for a few days, and the Scottish Sun has now revealed there IS interest in Bushiri from Easter Road.

22-year-old Bushiri is well know by both new Hibs boss Shaun Maloney who knows him through the Belgium set-up, and Hibs CEO Ben Kensell from his days at Norwich City.

The Sun reports that the Hibees will attempt to sign the former Oostende defender on a loan deal until the end of the season.

Bushiri is currently recovering from an injury that cut-short a loan spell with Belgian side Eupen.

He has also had loan spells with Blackpool and with Sint-Truiden, KV Mechlen and another previous loan with Eupen , all in his homeland.

The central defender has also been capped at U19 and U21 level with Belgium.


Is this the "mystery" target the Hibees have been talking to the last few days?

Hibs have been looking for a big, powerful central defender and Bushiri looks to fit the bill.

The only worry would be he is just recovering from injury and hasn't played in quite a while., but we are crying out for another central defender

Definately one to watch....
