Hibernian are delighted to announce the signing of Australian international Mark Milligan on a two-year deal, subject to securing a work permit.
The midfielder, who can also operate in the centre of defence, has 71 caps for the Australian national squad and played in all three games at the recent FIFA World Cup in Russia.
He was most recently at Saudi Arabian side Al-Ahli, who he joined from Australian side Melbourne Victory.
Milligan said: “I am delighted to have joined Hibernian.
“I know it’s a big club with an exciting young squad, and I hope to be able to add to that with my experience.
“Jamie (Maclaren) obviously did well here last year and gave Hibs a bit of a profile back home – everyone there is pretty familiar with the Scottish game and I’m excited to now be a part of that.
“The team have had a good start to the season with the run in Europe and I’m looking forward to joining up with the squad and getting going.”
Meanwhile, the club have now secured a work permit for Thomas Agyepong, who will be available for selection this weekend.
