Hibernians sign Brazilian centreback Higor Gabriel

Hibernians FC have completed their transfer activity this month with the signing of Brazilian defender Higor Gabriel Fernandes Alves.

The 24-year-old centre back has decided to continue his career in the Maltese Premier League after agreeing personal terms with the Paolites and put pen to paper on a deal until the end of the seson.

Alves joins Hibernians and fills the void left by fellow compatriot Eriks Santos who has mutually agreed to terminate his contract with the club.

Higor Gabriel came through the youth ranks of top Brazilian club Fluminense before he decided to continue his career in Azerbaijan where he joined top-flight side Sabak FK.

In the summer of 2022, he decided to move to Belarus club Dinamo Minsk for a six-month loan stint before returning to his Azeri club.

In 2023, Higor Gabriel secured another loan spell at Ukrainian side PFK Lviv where he made 11 appearances before his contract at the Azeri club expired last September.

Higor Gabriel is now in line to make his debut for Hibernians in this weekend’s clash against Santa Lucia on Sunday.
