Hibs have signed promising youngster Josh Campbell to a new contract at Easter Road to tie him to the Hibees until 2025.

Campbell has progressed through the Hibs’ Academy and started the 3-1 Hampden win over Rangers last month in the Premier Sports Cup semi-final and the Europa Conference League qualifier against Santa Coloma earlier this season.

Manager Jack Ross was delighted to secure Campbell on a long-term contract as he praised the ‘significant progress’ the midfielder has made over the last 12 months.

“Josh has been at the club for a number of years and desperately wants to do well for Hibernian FC,” Ross said.

“He’s made significant progress compared to where he was this time last season and we’re constantly working to help him develop his game and a consistency in everything he does.

“We want to keep our best young players at the club, and we’re pleased that Josh has agreed this new deal with us.”

Before breaking into the first-team at Easter Road, Campbell had stints on loan with Airdrieonians, Arbroath, and Edinburgh City where he gained valuable senior experience before his return to the Cabbage.

The 21-year-old could be handed a starting berth tonight when Jack Ross’ side welcome Rangers to Easter Road in the Scottish Premiership as he looks to add to his handful of Premiership starts this season.

After playing the full 90 minutes of the weekend win at St Johnstone, Campbell looks to have firmly established himself in the first-team picture at Hibs as he joins the likes of Lewis Stevenson, Paul Hanlon and Christian Doidge in signing new deals at Easter Road recently.
