Hibernian can confirm the signing of striker Simon Murray after the expiry of his contract with Dundee United.
The attacker, 25, scored 18 times for the Tannadice club in the 2016/17 season, and previously enjoyed spells with Arbroath and Montrose.
Hibernian Head Coach Neil Lennon says that he is pleased to have signed Simon on a two-year deal, and is looking forward to bringing a player with his attributes into the squad.
He said: “Simon is a great player, one who enjoyed a personally solid season with Dundee United, and it is pleasing to bring someone of his calibre to the club.
“He’s strong, he’s quick with a good turn of pace, plus he knows how to find the back of the net. He has fantastic attributes and a real hunger to continue to improve as well – I’m delighted to have secured his services for next season.
“With the players who have renewed and Danny Swanson coming in as well, I believe we are moving in the right direction with our recruitment, and that process is still ongoing to ensure we have as strong a squad as possible for the club’s return to the top flight.”
Simon’s father, Gary, also played for Hibernian between 1980-1984, scoring 19 times in 97 appearances.
