Hibernian are pleased to confirm the signing of Ghana striker Junior Agogo, who joins the club on a one-year contract, pending international clearance.

The 31-year-old has a wealth of experience from a successful career that has seen him play in England's Npower Championship, the USA, Egypt and Cyprus.

Agogo has also represented Ghana 27 times - including the African Cup of Nations - and has scored 12 goals for his country.

Manager Colin Calderwood welcomed the news and believes Agogo will prove to be both an asset to the squad and popular with the club's supporters.

Calderwood said: "We are really pleased to be able to add Junior to the squad. He is a proven goalscorer and a strong character and he has already settled into Hibernian life in the two weeks he has been on trial with the club.

"Junior never gets fazed by challenges and he will add another dimension to our attacking arsenal. I'm sure the fans will take to him and that his arrival will further strengthen our attacking options."

Centre forward Agogo says he is delighted to have signed for Hibernian and thrilled to be reunited with Calderwood, who signed him for Nottingham Forest five years ago.

Agogo said: "As soon as Colin told me about the opportunity, there was only one club that I wanted to sign for and that was Hibernian.

"I've enjoyed every minute of my time at Hibernian so far and the atmosphere within the squad is both positive and ambitious.

"I know what Colin wants from his players and I am aiming to deliver committed displays and goals to the team.

"I've not played in Scotland before, but I'm really looking forward to the challenge ahead."
