Hibernian have completed the signing of Iceland Under-21 international Victor Palsson from Liverpool. The 19-year-old midfielder, who can also operate in defence, has joined the Edinburgh club until the end of next season. Palsson is boss Colin Calderwood's fourth signing of the transfer window, following the captures of Matt Thornhill, Martin Scott and loan recruit Richie Towell, as Hibs bid to pull away from the relegation zone in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League. Palsson told the club's official website: "I played for Iceland Under-21s against Scotland at Easter Road a few months ago and I was really impressed with the atmosphere, it is a special stadium. "As soon as I was aware of Hibernian's interest, I was really keen to join the club and to work with the manager, it is a really exciting move for me. "I believe the Scottish league will suit my way of playing and I am looking forward to playing for Hibernian. Edinburgh is a great city and everything about the move indicates it is the right decision for me."
