Sky Sports understands Hibernian are poised to sign former Colchester goalkeeper Ben Williams on a free transfer.

Williams arrives at Easter Road on a free transfer after seeing out his contract at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

The former Manchester United trainee impressed during his time at Colchester and established himself as one of the best shot-stoppers outside the top two divisions.

A number of Championship clubs are thought to have expressed an interest in Williams, but Hibs boss Pat Fenlon has persuaded him to move to Scotland.

Fenlon has made a new goalkeeper one of his top priorities with the club struggling for a No.1 keeper over the last few seasons.
