Hibs youngster Ethan Laidlaw signs for Brentford

Last updated : 28 July 2023 By Steve Forbes

Hibs have today announced that young striker Ethan Laidlaw has joined English side Brentford.

The 18-year-old attacker has joined the English Premiership club for an undisclosed six-figure fee, plus a sizeable sell-on fee.

Laidlaw refused a new contract at Easter Road and will now be added to Brentford's "B" squad.


It's tough to lose such a talented player, but he clearly didn't want to stay, and there is no point keeping an unhappy player.

It's a big gamble for a young lad who was knocking on the door of the Hibs first team, to head down to one of these big academy's down south.

A lot of players have done it in the past and have never been heard of again.

Good luck to Ethan.
