Hibs have signed Anthony Stokes from Sunderland. Apparently there will be a press conference tomorrow to make the announcement.
It’s been widely rumoured since Yogi arrived at the club that Stokes would return to play for him after an uneventful spell down south. Stokes signed for Sunderland for around £2 million so you’d have to figure that Hibs have paid some sort of fee to get him back to Scotland. Lets hope he can find the form that got him that transfer in the first place.
This is a genuinely exciting signing and along with the return of Benji and Zemmama and addition of 3 midfielders who all, so far, look the biz – we could be in for a decent season.
To top it all, the Jambos were humped in 4-0 by Dynamo Zagreb tonight too. Happy days!
