Hibs release Austrian kid Elias Wagner!!!!

Last updated : 22 August 2007 By Steve Forbes
Hibs have this afternoon revealed that Austrian wonderkid Elias Wagner has been released from his contract, at the player's request.

Wagner, 16, arrived at Easter Road in a wave of publicity after Hibs beat the likes of Celtic, Tottenham Hotspur and Everton to the youngster's signature.

The player only arrived a couple of months back, but his request to be released from his contract has been granted by the club.

It is thought Wagner is having some personal problems and that he has struggled to settle in

The young midfielder arrived from Austrian side Admira Wacker and had signed a two year deal at Easter Road.

Good luck in the future to the young lad, obviously too big a move at such a tender age.
