Jamie Maclaren has re-joined Hibernian from SV Darmstadt 98 on a season-long loan deal.
The Australian international initially joined Hibernian on loan in January for the second half of the 2017/18 season from the German club, playing 15 times and scoring eight goals – including a hat-trick against Rangers on the last day of the campaign.
Now, the striker is delighted to be coming back to Leith after enjoying his time at the Club in the first half of 2018.
Jamie said: “A few factors drove me to come back. With the success that we had last season it just breeds confidence throughout the squad and, for me, scoring goals was important.
“After having the World Cup experience I want to kick on. This is the best club for me to be at to kick on.
“I think having a manager like Neil Lennon who backs me and every player in the squad, that’s who you want to play for. And the fans have also been on at me on social media since the break, so it’s nice to be wanted and valued.
“I’m just glad I’m here.”
Jamie is eligible for our Ladbrokes Premiership match against Motherwell on Sunday and our UEFA Europa League Third Qualifying Round tie against Molde FK.
