Hibs have today announced the signing of Slask Wroclaw keeper Maksymilian Boruc.
The 20-year-old has signed for an undisclosed fee and has signed a 2-year-deal at Easter Road.
6ft 4in Boruc, cousin of former Celtic keeper Artur, was on trial with the Hibees earlier year and obviously did enough to convince Hibs boss Lee Johnson to sign him.
He started his career with Swedish side Husqvarna FF, before having spells in England with Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion.
Boruc then headed home and signed for Slask.
Speaking to the official club website, Boruc said:
“I’m really pleased to be here and looking forward to the challenge. It’s a great club with a great atmosphere and I can’t wait to get started.
“I was here for two weeks in March and really enjoyed working with Stuart Garden – he’s a great Goalkeeping Coach. I was also working with David Marshall and Muz (Murray Johnson), and we had a really good group. I always felt like I was learning something new, which is why I wanted to come back here.
“It’s the best opportunity for me, to learn off an experienced goalkeeper like David Marshall who has played at international level. I couldn’t imagine a better option for me to come to Scotland and learn from someone. We have good chemistry, and I just want to learn as much as I can from him.”
Signing number five through the door, and it completes the need for Hibs to have three keepers to compete in Europe.
He looks an exciting prospect, let's hope he can learn from Marsh and force his way into first team contention.
Welcome to the Hibees Maksymilian!!
