Hibernian FC can confirm that terms have been agreed with Tom Taiwo to join the Club.

But the player's registration for Hibernian FC outwith a Transfer Window is subject to approval by both the Scottish FA and the SPL and subject also to the English FA releasing an ITC.

Taiwo was last registered for Carlisle United and Hibernian FC is grateful to them for their assistance in establishing the player's eligibility to be registered for Hibernian FC.

It is unlikely that the player's registration will be confirmed before the weekend, but as soon as that is concluded we will communicate the news officially via the official website, www.hibernianfc.co.uk.

Taiwo has been training with the first team squad this week and in anticipation of his registration for the Club, the player was invited to participate in the annual squad photocall, which took place at Easter Road earlier this afternoon.
