Hibs recall Kanayo Megwa from Airdrieonians loan

Last updated : 18 January 2024 By Steve Forbes

Hibs have revealed that young defender Kanayo Megwa has been recalled from his loan with Airdrieonians.

The19-year-old right-back has been in sensational form for the Championship side, and was added to the Hibees squad that flew to Dubai for manager Nick Montgomery to take a look at the player.

Megwa clearly impressed Monty and will now be added to the first team squad for the rest of the season and is expected to game time.

His recall also means that the Hibees will NOT be making a move to sign Leeds United youngster Kris Moore, who was also in Dubai, on trial, but has now returned to the Elland Road club.

Megwa made 13 appearances whilst with Airdrieonians.


Good news, you always want to see the youth system at the club produce.

A lot of fans questioned why Hibs let Megwa go out on loan in the first place, after he impressed in pre-season games.

However, he now has more first team minutes in him and could stand him in good stead going into the business end of the season.
