Last updated : 31 January 2022 By Steve Forbes

Hibs have tonight confirmed that they have signed Norwegian winger Runar Hauge.

The youngster has been signed from Norwegian Champions Bodo/Glimt and has signed a three-and-a-half year deal.

He is now tied to Easter Road until 2025.

Hauge has been capped all the way from U15 to U19 level  with Norway and the Hibees will be hoping he continues to develop in Edinburgh.

Speaking to the official club website, Hibs Academy chief Steve Kean said:

“When the fans get to see him, they will see someone with incredible pace. He can play wide left, wide right and he can play as a 10.

“He is a set-piece specialist who is incredibly good in one-on-on situations. He likes to get at players and uses his pace to get past players. He has added assists to his game as well, he can spot a final pass and is a player that will definitely get the fans off their seats.

“He is something that we have been missing in the Academy recently, so we are looking forward to seeing him feature in the Development Squad games initially.

“We are absolutely delighted to have him in the building. We feel that Hibs is the perfect club for him to come and develop his talents.”

Another exciting looking kid added to the academy.

Hibs have been casting their net far and wide lately in an attempt to bolster the youth system.

Let's hope it's not too long before we see Runar alongside countryman Elias Melkersen in the Hibees first team.
