Hellas Verona FC have signed Scottish defender Josh Doig from Hibernian FC. The Italian club announced: “Hellas Verona FC announces that they have acquired from Hibernian FC – definitively until 30 June 2026 – the right to sports performances of the Scottish defender Josh Doig.
“Hellas Verona FC gives Josh Doig a warm welcome, wishing him the best personal and team satisfaction in the yellow and blue jersey.”
This was conformed by the Hibs, who stated: “We can confirm that Josh Doig has left Hibernian FC. Joining Serie A side Hellas Verona for a significant seven-figure deal.
“The full terms of the 20-year-old’s departure will remain undisclosed, however, the fee received will be one of the highest sales figures the Club has ever received, with the deal also including add-ons and a large sell-on agreement.
On his departure, Chief Executive Ben Kensell commented: “I’d like to begin by thanking Josh for his time at Hibernian FC; he’s a great young man with a big future ahead of him.
“We have received what is a really significant fee for this football club.
“This is a great example of what we want Hibs to be; a club that gives young, talented players a platform to shine; before they generate substantial fees to re-invest into the Club and the playing squad. This is how we will grow as a football club.”
Hibernian FC Manager Lee Johnson added: “This deal highlights the great work done in the Academy. And shows the pathway for our young players.
“The terms of this deal made complete sense for us. Josh is an excellent talent and I have no doubt he will go on to have a successful future.”
