Agyepong on brink of Hibernian move after passing medical

Ghana winger Thomas Agyepong has reportedly passed a medical examination which will enable him to complete a move to Scottish Premier League side Hibernian within the next few days.

According to the Evening News, only a few formalities need to be completed before the 21-year-old joins Neil Lennon’s squad on a season-long loan from English champions Manchester City.

Hibs are said to be confident of obtaining the necessary work permit and SFA endorsement which would allow Agyepong to make the switch to Edinburgh to become Lennon’s fourth signing of the summer.

Agyepong, who uses his blistering pace to operate in a wide-left berth, joined Manchester City as an 18-year-old from the Right to Dream Academy in Ghana. He has been farmed out on loan over the past few seasons to Dutch clubs FC Twente and NAC Breda.

Capped three times by Ghana, a shoulder injury he suffered in March ended Agyepong’s time in the Netherlands, but now he’s been given a clean bill of health and all that is required is to improve his match fitness once the necessary red tape is dealt with.
