Arsenal have confirmed that Harry Clarke has signed an 18-month loan deal with SPL side Hibernian.
The 20-year-old defender heads to Easter Road following a successful first half of the season with Ross County.
Clarke, who spent last year with Oldham, had been due to spend the season at Victoria Park but was recalled earlier this week so that the new move could be facilitated.
Presumably, the decision has been made with the player’s development in mind. The SPL splits in two at the season’s halfway point so playing for Hibs, who are currently fifth in the table, ensures he’ll be playing against higher-level opponents through until the summer.
Just in case things don’t pan out as wanted, Arsenal have inserted optional break clauses in the summer and in January 2023.
Best of luck, Harry.
