Hibs kid Dino Leddie is on his way to Spain, after agreeing to head out the club on loan.
Leddie joins CD Almunecar City on loan until January, when he will return to Easter Road for an assesment.
The defender will gain some much needed experience with the Spanish 6th tier side.
Speaking to the official website, Hibs Sporting Director Graeme Mathie said:
“This is a great opportunity for Dino, whose attitude and application has been excellent ever since he joined the club.
“This move allows him to experience adult football abroad, which is something we’d like to facilitate for more of our young players and it will undoubtedly be a tremendous learning experience for Dino.
“We’re pleased he’ll be able to return in January when we can discuss his future development options.”
A good move for the kid, a different language and culture, and more importantly, a different style of football.
A quick look at his new sides website, reveals they have a squad of players from all over the world, with a number from England, Wales and the US, which should help him settle.
