Hibernian have signed midfielder Josh Vela on a three-year contract, as announced by their official club website today.
The 25-year-old was a free agent after leaving Bolton Wanderers in May following their relegation from the Championship.
Second tier side Hull City were linked with a move for him before Nigel Adkins left last month with new boss Grant McCann obviously turning his transfer attentions elsewhere with the player now moving up to the Scottish Premiership.
Vela, who is from Salford, left Bolton this summer when his contract expired. He had been with the Trotters since 2002.
He rose up through the youth ranks of the North-West side and went onto play 182 times for them, chipping in with 13 goals. He also made three appearances in the Premier League.
