Edinburgh-born Scotland kid Jordan Holsgrove joins Celta Vigo
Ex-Hibs player’s son heads to Spain
The Scotland Under-21 midfielder Jordan Holsgrove has joined Spanish club Celta Vigo after leaving English Championship side Reading.
Son of former Hibs midfielder Paul, Holsgrove signed a two-year deal in Galicia and will play for Celta’s B team in the third tier of Spanish football.
A statement on the club website described the 21-year-old, who was born in Edinburgh, as “a skilled footballer who stands out for his exquisite touch of the ball.”
Holsgrove has represented Scotland at under-17, under-19, under-20 and under-21 level but played all of his career outside this country.
He was born in the Capital during his father’s spell at Hibs in season 1998/99, however the family returned to England just a few months later.
Holsgrove came through the youth academy at Reading and spent last season on loan at another Spanish third division club, Atletico Baleares.
