Goalkeeper Adam Bogdan joins Hibernian on loan from Liverpool

By July 2, 2018No Comments

Liverpool goalkeeper Adam Bogdan has joined Hibernian on a season-long loan deal.

The Reds announced the move had been completed ahead of Hibs’ Europa League clash with NSI Runavik on July 12.

The 30-year-old Hungarian has made six first-team appearances for Liverpool and had a loan spell at Wigan in 2016, but has not played a competitive game since November of that year.

He will provide competition for Ofir Marciano, who has been struggling with a finger injury and is currently a doubt for the Edinburgh club’s European opener, after Cammy Bell left Easter Road at the end of the season.

Bogdan will be reunited with Neil Lennon in Leith, with the pair previously working together at Bolton and the Hungary international is looking forward to continuing the good work of his new manager.

“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 once again,” he told the club website.

“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.”

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 getting started.

“Having previously worked with him at Bolton I know that we are bringing in a quality player with experience playing at a high standard, including representing his country.”
