Scottish Premiership sides have joined the likes of Arsenal and Barcelona in taking part in an online transfer summit with a collective 200 clubs (DR).

Hibs and Motherwell were both present as they look to gain a signing edge with some of Europe’s biggest clubs through Transferroom’s virtual summit. Arsenal and Barcelona are regular attendees of the event, alongside other European heavyweights and Premier League clubs.

Such teams were involved during the event on Wednesday, which has been described as transfer ‘speed-dating.’ The events allow teams across the globe to meet with each other to discuss recruitment and other business in the space of 12 minute conversations.

These events were held in-person prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, but now take place virtually. Hibs sporting director Graeme Mathie has previously been involved with these meetings, Scottish Premiership champions Rangers also taking part.

Hibs already have connections to one of the Transferroom teams, Arsenal set to travel to Easter Road for a friendly next month.
