Hibs sign Adam Bogdan

Last updated : 21 November 2019 By Steve Forbes

Hibs have today confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Adam Bogdan on a deal until January.

Bogdan, 32, re-joins the Hibees after spending last season on loan at Easter Road from Liverpool.

The Hungarian left Anfield in the summer and has been a free agent until now.

Speaking to the official club website, he said:

“I’m really happy to be back at a club that means a lot to me.

“My family and I really enjoyed our time here last season and when the opportunity arose to sign it didn’t take me long to think it over.

“I’ve been training on my own and with a few clubs, waiting for the right opportunity.

“It’s been good to see a few old faces and meet some new ones. Now I just want to work hard and hopefully give the Head Coach something to think about.”

Editor's View:

Bogdan is an excellent signing for the Hibees.

He was excellent whilst on loan from Liverpool last season, and his best performance in a Hibs shirt was probably the away leg of the Europa League clash with Greek side Asteris Tripolis.

The Hungarian was outstanding that night.

He was initially signed as cover for the then injured Ofir Marciano, only for him to pick up a concussion injury, allowing Marciano back in once fit.

The only worry is, could this spell the end for Israel goalkeeper Marciano?

He is without doubt Hibs best keeper, but he fell out-of-favour under Paul Heckingbottom, losing his place to on loan Chris Maxwell.

Marciano has been to the press insisting he may need to leave to play first team football, after winning back his place as Iarael No.1 following a couple of years in the wilderness.

On the other hand, this could possibly hint towards Hibs ending the loan deal of Maxwell early and Bogdan fighting it out with 'Rocky' for the gloves.
