Hibs signs Norwich defender

Scottish side Hibernian have completed the signing of defender David Stephens from Norwich.

The 18-year-old has signed a three-year contract at Norwich and will job Hibs for an undisclosed fee.

“I am really pleased to have agreed a move to Hibernian; it is an ambitious club with top-class training facilities and a first class stadium,” Stephens told the club’s official website.

“I’m still learning my trade at the moment, but Hibernian has a track record of promoting young players into the first team and this was a great attraction for me.

“I’m confident that when I do get an opportunity I will seize my chance. I’m excited to be here and especially so given that the opening Europa League match is only a few weeks away.

“It is a big move for me and I’ve been really impressed with the Club and with Edinburgh; it seems like a great place to live and I just want to achieve all my goals at Hibernian.”
