Hibs release Emmanuel Johnson

Last updated : 23 January 2024 By Steve Forbes

Hibs revealed this morning that youngster Emmanuel Johnson has left the club by mutual consent.

The 20-year-old American wing-back was signed from the Barcelona Academy back in 2022, but has failed to break into the first team at Easter Road.

He played once for the development squad in the Scottish Challenge Cup, but spent most of his time out on loan.

EJ started with a loan to Charleston Battery, before being re-called and sent out to Edinburgh City.

His final loan spell was with Austin FC II, where he won the MLS Next Pro Cup this season.


He looked like a good prospect for the future, but it hasn't worked out for him in Scotland.

We wish him well.
