Hibernian have completed the signing of defender Harry Clarke on loan from English Premier League giants Arsenal.

Clarke, who spent the first half of the season on loan at Ross County, moves to Easter Road on an 18-month loan deal.

The defender becomes the third January signing for Shaun Maloney’s team, following Elias Melkersen and Ewan Henderson in joining the Edinburgh side.

Maloney told the club’s official website: “Harry has very good technical attributes in both attacking and defensive actions, and I’m really pleased we’ve been able to secure him for the Club.

“He will bring an exciting energy and speed in both areas, and I have no doubt he’ll be a big asset for us going forward.

“In speaking to him, I know how hungry he is to succeed and be a part of this Club and over the coming days I’m very much looking forward to working with him.”
