Florian Kamberi seals permanent Hibernian move after successful loan spell

By June 14, 2018No Comments

Hibernian have signed Swiss frontman Florian Kamberi on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee from Grasshopper Club Zurich.

The 23-year-old was a major hit during a six-month loan spell last season, netting nine goals in 14 appearances.

He suffered just one defeat during that stint and Easter Road boss Neil Lennon was keen to strike a deal that would see the player return to Edinburgh.

Kamberi said: “I am very happy to be coming back to Hibs. I want to continue where I left off and help the club to continue to improve.

“We are in Europe and have a good squad, so it will be a good season I’m sure.”

Hibs chief executive Leeann Dempster added: “Florian was a priority target for us, so we’re delighted to get it done.

“He was a great success here last season, so I am really thrilled that we were able to bring him back on a permanent deal.

“Everyone at the club is eager for the on-field successes of the past three seasons to continue, and signing Florian is a part of the jigsaw for the season ahead.”
