Hibernian have completed a deal to sign Will Fish on loan from Manchester United for a second time.

The centre-back had a successful loan spell at Easter Road last season and agreement has been reached for the player to return on a season-long deal, with his situation to be reviewed in January.

Fish played 21 times for Lee Johnson’s side last season, and scored three goals, as the team finished in fifth place in the Premiership, securing a place in Europe.

Hibs boss Johnson was eager to bring the player back into his squad and said Fish added quality to the back line.

“We’re delighted to get this deal over the line and bring Will back to the club,” he told the Hibs website.

“During his first season with us he showed that he is a player with real quality, and he adds composure and consistency to our back-line.

“Everyone at the club is looking forward to working with Will again and having him around the building.”
