HIBS fought off competition from Dundee United and several clubs in England to secure the signing of former Hamilton favourite Alex Gogic.

The combative Gogic, 26, signed a two-year deal with the Hibees on Friday afternoon after undergoing a medical at the club’s East Lothian training base.

The Cypriot enforcer was the capital club’s third capture of the day following the arrivals of Drey Wright and Kevin Nisbet.

Combative: Gogic will be Hibs’ midfield enforcer

Gogic will finally fill the void of a tough-tackling, deep-lying midfielder which has arguably been missing since the departure of Marvin Bartley last summer.

Gogic, who made 84 appearances in his three-and-a-half years at Accies, said: “I had opportunities to go and play elsewhere throughout Europe, but I love the game in Scotland and I know already what a big club this is.

“I am here to help make the team better in any way I can and I take pride in being able to win the ball back for my team-mates. That’s the side of the game I enjoy the most.

“I’ve missed playing and can’t wait to get going.”
