Chris Cadden is a Hibee!

Chris Cadden today becomes our third signing of the January transfer window.

The versatile 24-year-old has agreed a two-and-a-half-year contract at Easter Road, having completed his move from MLS side Columbus Crew, and is in contention to feature tomorrow against Kilmarnock.

Chris will be well-known to Hibernian supporters, having made his name at Motherwell before a switch Stateside.

In May 2018 he made his full Scotland debut alongside our long-serving left-back, Lewis Stevenson, in a friendly game against Peru and we have no doubt he can push for a recall during his time in Leith.

Head Coach Jack Ross said: “I’m delighted to get Chris on board and he’s a player I’ve admired for some time.

“Players like Chris are a manager’s dream because he’s intelligent enough to play in a few positions, with his athleticism and work-rate stand-out features. He’s also comfortable on the ball.

“His enthusiasm to move to Hibernian has really shone through and I’ve no doubt he will add something different to our group.”

Chris added: “I’m really looking forward to getting started and I’ve been excited since I first heard about the club’s interest in me.

“I know most of the boys in the squad and I’ve had some great conversations with the gaffer and the staff about where they want to take Hibs.

“Wherever I’m asked to play, I just want to contribute to a team that’s challenging for trophies and competing for a European place.”
