Last updated : 14 June 2018 By Steve Forbes

Hibs have today announced that they have completed their first signing of the summer transfer window.

The Hibees have completed the signing of striker Florian Kamberi for a fee in the region of £100,000 from Grasshoppers of Zurich.

Kamberi, 23, has signed a three-year-deal with the Hibees and returns to Easter Road after last season's superb loan spell.

Hibs activated a clause in the original loan deal with the Swiss club, that allowed them to pick him for a bargain fee when reports had English side Sunderland having offers of £1.8m turned down for the hitman.

Speaking to the official club website, Kamberi said:

“I am very happy to be coming back to Hibs. I want to continue where I left off and help the club to continue to improve. “We are in Europe and have a good squad, so it will be a good season I’m sure."

Hibs CEO Leeann Dempster added:

“He was a great success here last season, so I am really thrilled that we were able to bring him back on a permanent deal.

“Everyone at the club is eager for the on-field successes of the past three seasons to continue and signing Florian is a part of the jigsaw for the season ahead.”

A brilliant first signing for the Hibees!!
