Hibernian have confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Jakub Divis on a 12-month loan deal.

The 24-year-old impressed on trial from Tatran Presov before being offered a contract at the SPL outfit.

And the Czech shot-stopper will now compete with Mark Brown, Graeme Smith and Graeme Stack for a first-team place.

Divis told Hibs' official website: "Hibernian is a club that is very highly regarded in the Czech Republic and I'm very proud to now be part of the team.

"After training and playing with the squad, I knew I wanted to be a part of Hibernian and now I want to push hard for a first team place."


The deal was done on a busy day at Easter Road with three players leaving the club.

Dutch midfielder Edwin de Graaf has joined Excelsior on loan until the end of the season, while Merouane Zemmama moved to Middlesbrough.

And Chris Hogg is another player to head out of Hibs' exit door as the defender joined Inverness after being released.

The 25-year-old made 172 appearances for the Easter Road club and was their club captain.

But he fell out of favour under Colin Calderwood and has signed for Caley Thistle until the end of the season.
