Last updated : 23 June 2023 By Steve Forbes

Hibs have today confirmed their fourth signing of the summer transfer window for the 2023/24 season.

Goalkeeper Jojo Wollacott has signed from English League One side Charlton Athletic.

The 26-year-old Ghana international has signed for an undisclosed fee and has signed a three-year-deal at Easter Road.

Wollacott started his career with Bristol City and had numerous loan spells away from the club as a kid.

He then moved on to Swindon Town, before moving to Charlton Athletic last season.

Hibs boss Lee Johnson said:

“We’re delighted to bring Jojo to the Club and I’m looking forward to working with him again.

“He’s a player I’ve known for some time and it’s great to see that he’s starting to fulfil his potential. He now has over 100 games under his belt and has played on the international stage with Ghana.

“He’s an athletic, brave, and confident goalkeeper, and with big competitions coming up it’s important we’re strong in the goalkeeping department.”

Another signing through the door nice and early.

Hibs needed to sign another keeper to give David Marshall competiton, but also to comply with the need to have three keepers for European competition.

With a move for Polish keeper Max Boruc also expected to be completed in the coming days.

It's good to see another international join the club.
