Hibernian are pleased to have concluded the season-long loan signing of Jason Naismith, subject to international clearance.
The 25-year-old joins us from parent club Peterborough United, and will be a familiar face to supporters after successful stints with formative club St Mirren and Ross County.
With club captain David Gray having recently suffered knee ligament damage and Tom James only just nearing a comeback from his own ankle injury, the powerful full-back gives us another option in a key area of the pitch.
Head Coach Paul Heckingbottom said: “Jason is someone who knows the league and has done well up here before.
“He’s a competitive player who will add real presence to our squad.
“Jason also showed his enthusiasm to come and play for Hibernian by helping push through the deal in time.”
Jason added: “I’m delighted we were able to get the deal over the line and I’m looking forward to getting started.
“No-one has to tell me how big a club Hibernian are and when I heard about their interest I didn’t have to think twice.
“I’m looking forward to meeting up with the rest of the boys this week and getting to work.”
