We are delighted to announce that experienced goalkeeper David Marshall will join Hibernian FC on 1 July 2022.
The 37-year-old Scotland international has penned a two-year pre-contract agreement to become a Hibee and will move to the Club when his contract with English Championship side QPR expires at the end of next month.
Marshall, who has 47 caps for Scotland, was his nation’s hero as the Scots qualified for Euro 2020, making crucial saves in penalty shootouts against Israel and Serbia.
Alongside this, he has made over 550 club appearances featuring in the SPFL, the English Premier League and the Champions League to name a few.
He joins from QPR where he was their number one until an injury curtailed his season.
Hibernian FC Manager, Lee Johnson, commented: “I’d like to offer David a very warm welcome. He’s an excellent goalkeeper and actually a player that I’ve tried to sign before.
“His experience will be invaluable for us both on and off the pitch. It’s vital that our senior players aren’t just great characters, but also help us set the standard around the training ground and on matchdays.
“He is a fantastic addition to this squad, and I’m looking forward to working with him.”
Head of Recruitment, Ian Gordon, added: “We have a young, talented, ambitious team, but we know that if we want to be successful, we need to have a good balance in terms of experience and leadership, and David Marshall fits that mould perfectly.
“He is a real professional, who will push on the other ‘keepers and really help accelerate the development of our younger goalkeepers like Murray Johnson.”
