Scottish Premier League side Hibernian FC have announced the signing of Thomas Agyepong from English Premier League champions Manchester City FC.

The promising attacker, who is a Ghana international, has joined the Hibs on a season-long loan deal from the Citizens.

Agyepong fills the void left by his former City team-mate Brandon Barker, who spent last season on loan at Easter Road.

Barker, who is also 21-years old winger, joined English side Preston on a temporary deal from City on Tuesday.

Hibernian opened their 2018/19 Premier League campaign with a 3-0 win over Motherwell at home last weekend.

The Hibs announced Agyepong's arrival on their official website.

A club statement read: "Hibernian can confirm that Thomas Agyepong has completed his registration at the club."

"The 21-year-old is now awaiting the completion of the necessary visa process before joining up with Neil Lennon’s squad."

"The winger signed for Manchester City in 2015 from the Right to Dream Academy, spending his time since then on loan at Twente and then two seasons at NAC Breda.'

"Thomas made his international debut for Ghana in June 2017, appearing in a 5-0 win over Ethiopia.

"He will wear the number 17 jersey at Hibernian."

The attacking midfielder made four further appearances for Ghana during 2017 after making his debut against Ethiopia.

The four appearances include two 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Congo.

Catch 2018/19 Scottish Premier League highlights show on Fox Sports later tonight (Thursday, August 9) at 19h10 CAT.
