Fulham winger Sylvester Jasper has joined Scottish Premier League side Hibernian on loan for the rest of the season.

The 20 year-old, who spent the first part of this campaign with Colchester United, moves to Easter Road to gain further first-team football and Hibs hold an option to make the deal permanent at the end of the season. Jasper, who earned two caps for Bulgaria’s under-21 side earlier this year, has made three senior appearances for the Whites and scored three times in 24 appearances during a successful stint with the U’s before Christmas.

Hibs boss Shaun Maloney said: “Sylvester is a talented young player that possesses a lot of creativity and speed. He gives us extra options and can play on both the left and right in attacking areas. My staff and I are looking forward to working with him and welcoming him to the club.”
