Hibernians FC have confirmed the signing of Guinea goalkeeper Ibrahim Kone.
As reported by the Times of Malta last week, the former Żejtun Corinthians goalkeeper has been on a trial with the Paolites for the last few days and had left a positive impression on coach Stefano Sanderra who decided to sign the towering goalkeeper.
At Hibernians, Kone is expected to battle for the no. 1 jersey with Nicky Vella and Jonathan Debono.
“We would like to announce the signing of 31-year-old Guinean goalkeeper Ibrahim Koné,” Hibernians FC said in a statement.
“Born on the 5th of December, 1989, Ibrahim started his career at CF Excellence in Ivory Coast before joining AS Denguele in 2007, also in Ivory Coast.
“In 2009, he made his move to France where he played with US Boulogne, Tarbes Pyrenees, Pau FC and Stade Bordelais until 2020.
“In September 2020, Ibrahim then joined Maltese Premier League side Zejtun Corinthians. The experienced goalkeeper has also been capped five times by the Guinean National Team.
“We would like to welcome Ibrahim to the club and wish him the best of luck for the following season!”
