Hibernian have completed their third signing of the day after Alex Gogic arrived from Hamilton on a two-year deal.
The 26-year-old defensive midfielder joined winger Drey Wright and striker Kevin Nisbet in moving to Jack Ross’ Easter Road outfit on a busy Friday.
Gogic impressed at Hamilton last season before leaving when his contract expired at the end of the campaign and will link up with his new team-mates on Monday.
He told the club’s official website: “I’m really happy to have everything sorted and to be a Hibernian player.
“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.”
Head coach Ross added: “We’re delighted to have Alex on board.
“He’s a leader and offers us a real presence in midfield. He’ll complement the other players we have in that area of the park.”
Wright is keen to get his Hibernian career up and running after agreeing a two-year contract with the Easter Road club.
The 25-year-old winger became Ross’ first signing of the summer and he was swiftly followed through the door by striker Nisbet, who joins from Dunfermline on a four-year deal.
Wright, who spent the last two seasons at St Johnstone, told Hibernian’s official website: “No-one had to explain the size of Hibernian as a club to me and as soon as I got off the phone from speaking to the gaffer and Graeme Mathie (sporting director) I knew it was the move I wanted to make.
“I spoke to a few boys who have played here and it was an easy decision in the end.
“First and foremost, I’ll give it everything I’ve got in every game. I know I’ll be expected to bring goals and assists, to help bring drive and energy to contribute in the attacking areas, but I also want to build a good relationship with the full-backs and make sure I can offer them some protection.
“They’ve made me feel really welcome and I can’t wait for the games to get up and running.”
Nisbet, 23, scored 23 goals in 32 games in his only season at Dunfermline.
He told the club’s official website: “It’s a new challenge for me and I’m confident – with the help of the staff here – that I can continue to improve as a player and help the team.
“I’ve been working hard on my fitness during the break and I can’t wait to get going.”
