Hibernian can confirm Dylan McGeouch has joined the club from Celtic for an undisclosed fee and the midfielder has agreed a three year contract.
The 22-year-old experienced a successful loan spell at Easter Road last season – recording 26 appearances and scoring three goals.
Now McGeouch will return to Easter Road on a permanent basis – something the former Scotland under-21 internationalist says he is delighted about.
Speaking exclusively to hibernianfc.co.uk, McGeouch said: “I’m really pleased to join Hibs permanently and picking up from where I left off last season.
“I really enjoyed playing for the club and working with Alan Stubbs, so when the opportunity came up to come back to Hibs it was the right choice for me.
“At this stage in my career, I need to be playing games on a regular basis and I felt I really benefitted from that experience last season.
“Now I’m looking to kick on and help the team to challenge for promotion.”
Head Coach Alan Stubbs says he is thrilled about securing the services of McGeouch on a permanent basis.
Stubbs said: “I’m absolutely delighted that we’ve managed to sign Dylan – his return will add real quality to the squad.
“He was one of our stand-out performers last season and he is a player that I’ve wanted to sign on a permanent basis from the very first day he joined on loan.
“So the fact that we’re now in a position to make that move a reality is fantastic news for everybody connected to the club.”
