Hibernian have signed Polish goalkeeper Max Boruc following a successful trial.

Hibs have paid an undisclosed fee to sign the player from Slask Wroclaw on a two-year contract.

The 20-year-old is the nephew of former Celtic and Poland goalkeeper Artur Boruc. He began his career with Swedish side Husqvarna FF before spells with Stoke and West Brom and then a move back to Poland.

Manager Lee Johnson said: “We had the pleasure of having Max on trial last season and we could see that he has a lot of potential.

“We really liked him as a character and look forward to helping develop different attributes in his game.”

Meanwhile, Hibs have revealed that Martin Boyle is closing in on a return to full training.

The Australia winger has been out since rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament in October last year and came through a “thorough testing programme” last week.

Johnson said: “We’re pulling the reins on him at the moment, but he’s champing at the bit to get going in full training.

“With an injury like that, every week or couple of weeks reduces the percentile of a reoccurrence of the injury. So given the stage of the season, we feel we can build him up.

“It would be fantastic if we could see him fully fit, without protection for the start of the season. Potentially a couple of weeks before.”
