Scottish Premiership side Hibernian took Manchester City winger, Thomas Agyepong on a season-long loan deal during this summer’s transfer window. But, how is the 21-year-old Ghanaian coping with life north of the border?
Agyepong talks to the media about joining Hibs.
Thomas joined City in 2015 and is so often the case with youngsters who join MCFC he was immediately shipped out to gain experience and game time. On this occasion, he enjoyed two loan spells in the Netherlands with FC Twente and NAC Breda.
If NAC Breda rings a bell, Manchester City agreed on a five-year partnership with the Dutch club in 2016.
When the deal was announced, Breda said via their pressroom: “Through the partnership, NAC will have the opportunity to take on loan players from Manchester City.
“Also in football technical terms, such as in the areas of scouting, to create elite culture and talent, knowledge and experience are exchanged and intensive cooperation.”
Life in the Premiership
Following two appearances and two goals for Hibernian Development Squad Thomas made his senior step up as a substitute, away at Livingston.
Since then he came on as a halftime sub against Kilmarnock, played the final two minutes away at Dundee and finally, took part in 30-minutes of extra time on Tuesday at home in the Betfred Cup quarter-final round against Aberdeen.
Will his loan be beneficial?
Hibs are one of the best counter-attacking sides in Scotland, and so one would think that will suit Agyepong down to the ground.
Love short passes.
Likes to dribble.
Draws the opposition in.
Standing 168cm tall and weighing 67kg his body continues to develop, hence, when his Edinburgh spell ends his development will have matured enough for City to make a decision on his next adventure.
