Former Hibs striker Junior Agogo has died at the age of 40.

Agogo, who played 14 games for the Edinburgh side, suffered a stroke in 2015 and struggled with his speech afterwards.

The former Ghana international agreed a one-year deal with Hibs in July 2011, scoring once in a 3-3 draw with Dundee United.

Agogo, who also played for Sheffield Wednesday, Nottingham Forest and Bristol Rovers, left Edinburgh in January the following year.

Hibs spoke of the club’s sadness following Agogo’s death.

The club said: “We were saddened to learn of the passing of our former striker Junior Agogo, who was a popular figure during his short time at Easter Road.

“Our thoughts are naturally with his family and friends at this difficult time. His memory marches on.”
