Hibs sign Liverpool keeper Adam Bogdan on loan

Last updated : 02 July 2018 By Steve Forbes

Hibs have today announced the signing of Liverpool goalkeeper Adam Bogdan.

The 30-year-old has joined the Hibees on loan until the end of the season.

Hibs boss Neil Lennon has moved to bolster his keeper department, following the injury to No.1 Ofir Marciano.

Marciano underwent surgery on a finger injury in the summer and has still to recover.

No.2 Ross Laidlaw has been out injured since December and needed surgery on his shoulder. This has left the Hibees looking a bit lightweight between the sticks.

Lennon has moved to land the Hungarian keeper, who he has worked with before at Bolton Wanderers.

Bogdan becomes the Hibees second summer signing, following the arrival of striker Florian Kamberi in a £100,000 deal from Grasshoppers of Zurich.

Speaking to the official club website, Bogdan said:

“The club is in a good position at the moment after a strong few seasons and it is important to build on what has been achieved, which was instantly attractive to me, as well as working with Neil Lennon again.

“There is good competition for goalkeeping positions here, so I am prepared to work hard to ensure that I can have a good season and help the team as best I can.”

Hibs boss Neil Lennon added:

“Adam is a very experienced and dependable goalkeeper and one I am pleased to have brought into the club ahead of the season starting. Having previously worked with him at Bolton,

"I know that we are bringing in a quality player with experience of playing at a high standard, including representing his country.

“That experience and his skill-set will help to bring on our other goalkeepers in the squad as well as helping us to achieve our aims this campaign."
