Hibernian FC is delighted to announce the signing of Steven Whittaker on a three-year-deal - subject to international clearance.

Steven, capped 31 times for Scotland, is no stranger to Easter Road and Hibernian supporters being a key member of the "Golden Generation." He won the League Cup with Hibernian in 2007. He has since played at Rangers and in the top flight in England with Norwich City.

His signing has been hailed as "a coup for the Club" by Head Coach Neil Lennon, who expressed his pleasure that Steven had chosen to come to Hibernian.

Steven, 33, said: "I am delighted to be back at Hibernian. When I decided to return to Scotland, Hibernian was the club I hoped to come to. While the discussions have taken a while, they have always been positive and I am very pleased to be back playing at Easter Road for the Hibernian fans, and I hope I can play my part in ensuring a successful return to the top flight."

Steven won’t be eligible to play in today’s match against Montrose.
