Last updated : 01 February 2024 By Steve Forbes

Hibs have tonight confirmed that striker Eliezer Mayenda has joined from Sunderland.

The 18-year-old Spaniard has joined the Hibees until the end of the season.

Mayenda joined the Black Cats from French side Sochaux for about £1m in the summer and has made 5 appearances in the Championship already.

Hibs boss Nick Montgomery, speaking to the official club website said:

“Eliezer is a player we’ve been monitoring and once the interest came in for Harry (McKirdy), we had a list of potential replacements on our recruitment list.

"With only a few hours remaining we spoke to Sunderland, and I had a phone call with the player and club. He had a few options on the table and after a discussion with his representatives, he decided he would like to join us until the end of the season.

“He’s a powerful, attacking player with lots of energy who can play both central and out-wide.

“At 18, he’s already played Championship football and is highly regarded at Sunderland with a big future ahead of him. He will complete our recruitment for January and add more depth to the squad.”
