Hibs today confirmed the loan signings of Notts County striker Danny Haynes, Sunderland winger Duncan Watmore and Arsenal defender Daniel Boateng.

All three players have joined the club until the end of the season, subject to international clearance.

Former England under-19 internationalist Haynes, 26, can play on either wing or through the middle and has previously played for Ipswich Town, Bristol City, Barnsley and Charlton Athletic before joining Notts in the summer.

Hibs manager Terry Butcher, unveiling his first signings since taking charge in November, said: “Danny is an extremely quick forward, who can play anywhere up front. I’ve followed his career since he made the breakthrough at my old club, Ipswich Town and he has scored goals wherever he has played.

“He will add extra experience, pace and quality to our forward line and we’re pleased to be able to bring Danny to Hibernian.”

Watmore, 19, is a winger who joined Sunderland from English non-league side Altrincham in the summer and made his first-team bow at the beginning of January in an FA Cup tie against Carlisle United.

Butcher added: “Duncan is a quick, direct winger with a good work-rate. He is a young player, who has impressed me with his intelligence on the pitch, eye for goal and quality deliveries into the box.

“Duncan has already made his first team debut at Sunderland and he is highly-rated by the coaching staff there; we’re pleased to be able to add him to the squad.”

Right-back Boateng, 21, has progressed up through the youth ranks at Arsenal and has previously been on loan at Swindon Town and Oxford United. He will join up with the squad on Monday.
