Thomas Agyepong has completed a season-long loan move to Hibernian from Manchester city.

The Ghana winger has left the Premier League champions for his third loan spell and will play alongside Nigeria international Efe Ambrose in Neil Lennon’s squad.

In 2015, Agyepong joined Manchester City from the Right to Dream Academy in Accra and was subsequently loaned to Dutch Eredivisie team FC Twente for the 2015-16 season.

Afterwards, the 21-year-old played for Dutch second tier team NAC Breda where he garnered two goals in 39 appearances in the 2016-15 and 2017-18 campaigns combined.

Agyepong made his international debut for Black Stars in their 5-0 win over Ethiopia in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualification in June 2017.

He, however, is a doubt for the Hibs upcoming Scottish Premier League match against St. Johnstone on Sunday as he awaits his UK visa.
