Arsenal secures an agreement with Scottish club for a player they just recalled on-loan

Arsenal has agreed to send Harry Clarke on loan to Hibernian for the second half of this season, days after recalling him from a loan spell at Ross County.

The defender impressed in the first half of the season and the news of his recall surprised some fans.

It felt like he may have had a role to play in the senior squad, but The Sun says he will instead head back out on loan to Hibs.

While County is closer to the foot of the Scottish league table, Hibs are having a much better season and are currently challenging for a European spot.

Playing for a better club should influence his development more, and he will now look to prove his worth there.

This is a great idea because it means Clarke will have played at two clubs that have distinct qualities in the same campaign.

He may have found life too easy at Ross County, and the challenge at Hibs should strengthen the defender further.

Clarke is one of several youngsters coming through at the club and he would hope he can convince Mikel Arteta to give him a chance soon.

Although we have spent a lot of money to strengthen our squad, Arteta has been willing to hand chances to impressive youth players and Clarke could get his chance soon.

  1. He didn’t find it easy at County, just look at the league position, BUT he was a standout and apart from losing interest in the last few games since a sending off he has shown some really excellent attributes and is clearly a proper player. County beat Hibs last time out and the latter are on a very poor run just now so for his sake they need to be doing better. It all boils down to just five games post split where Hibs are most likely going to be top 6, apart from that he will be playing against the same teams. Good luck Harry.
