Hibernian FC is pleased to announce the signing of talented midfielder Aiden McGeedy.
The 36-year-old has drafted a one-year deal that will keep him at the club until the summer of 2023.
Capped 93 times with the Republic of Ireland, the winger brought with him a wealth of experience down Easter Road.
Having started his career in Scotland with Celtic, McGeddy made his name with the hoops, playing more than 200 games for Glasgow over seven seasons.
McGeede enjoyed a stint with Spartak Moscow before moving to Everton to play in the Premier League. Having played in the Champions League and Premier League, McGeede spent several years in the English Championship and EFL League with Sheffield Wednesday, Preston North End, Charlton Athletic and Sunderland.
During his time in North East England with the Black Cats, he first played under Hibs’ new manager, Lee Johnson.
In their first season together, McGeady excelled and was named to the 2020/21 EFL League One Team of the Season after contributing six goals and 17 assists from outside.
Speaking to hibernianfc.co.uk, Lee Johnson is excited about his reunion with his former player. He said: “We are thrilled to bring Aiden to Hibernian FC.
“He will bring skill, experience and charisma to our team. Eden is a great player, he has had an impressive career so far and we are aiming to expand and enhance his capabilities within the mix of our new squad.
“We will also look to capitalize on Eden’s impressive leadership qualities to help guide and get the best out of our young attacking players.”
McGeede is the club’s seventh first signing on the summer transfer window with David Marshall, Nohan Kenneh, Rocky Busheri, Louis Miller, Momodu Bojang and Jair Tavares all putting paper on paper ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.
Ian Gordon, Hibernian FC’s Head of Recruitment, added: “Aiden will bring an excellent combination of experience and high quality to our side.
“He has played at the highest level during his career and will help raise our standards in the future.”
