DONE DEAL: Hibs sign Norwich youngster Rocky Bushiri

Hibernian have signed Rocky Bushiri on a three-year deal from Norwich City after the defender's loan spell last season at Easter Road.

Bushiri, 22, made 15 appearances following his January arrival to trigger the option of a permanent move.

His signing comes after 20-year-old striker Momodou Bojang joined on loan from Gambian club Rainbow FC.

Gambia Under-20 cap Bojang spent last season with Famalicao's Under-23 side in Portugal, scoring six goals.

New Hibs manager Lee Johnson says centre-back Bushiri has "a lot of attributes" to be successful.

"He has obvious strengths and it'll be interesting to see how quickly he can adapt to a new playing style," Johnson added.
