Hibernian have confirmed the signing of former Aberdeen and Hamilton Accies defender Michael Devlin.

The 29-year-old, who has three Scotland caps, has signed on at Easter Road until the end of the season after becoming a free agent in January.

He is looking to get his career back on track after being dogged by injuries over the last two years and get back to the form that gained him international recognition in 2019.

Lee Johnson says he is “delighted” to sign the defender after the deal was confirmed on Monday.

Speaking to Hibs TV he said: “We’re delighted to bring Mikey to the Club and add depth in our defensive area.

“We have been impressed with him in training over the last week, and by bringing him in permanently it gives us the perfect blend at centre-half having two experienced players and two talented youngsters.

“He’s a good character and his experience of Scottish football will benefit the group. We look forward to continuing working with him.”
