Hibs release four youngsters

Last updated : 20 May 2019 By Steve Forbes

In what has been a hectic day at Easter Road, another four youth players have been released, taking the exits from the club  to SEVENTEEN over the last few days.

Kane O'Connor - Failed to force his way into the development side, despite being the Scotland U17 captain.

More baffling is the fact that he is being chased by a number of clubs including English Premiership sides Burnley and Brighton, but is said to be close to agreeing a deal with Brentford, yet Hibs have decided against renewing his contract.

Kevin Waugh - A long serving youth defender, who has had loan spells with Gala Fairydean, Berwick Rangers and Civil Service Strollers.

The 21-year-old was awarded Civil Service Strollers Fans' Player of the Year award.

Ruairi Paton - The young striker has just returned from a successful loan spell with Gala Fairydean, where he finished top goalscorer and won their Player of the Year award.

The 18-year-old Irish striker joined the Hibees from Belvedere in his homeland in 2016.

Callum Donaldson - 19-year-old full-back has also been released from Easter Road.

Had a previous loan spell with Berwick Rangers.

Good luck for the future lads from everyone at Hibernian-Mad.
