Hibs have today announced that goalkeeper Matt Macey has signed a new deal with the club.
The 26-year-old has signed a two-year extension to his deal, that wil keep him tied to Easter Road until the summer of 2023.
Macey joined the Hibees from Arsenal in January and has impressed in the games he has played, mostly in the Scottish Cup.
Hibs boss Jack Ross has moved to tie the player down, following the news that No.1 Ofir Marciano will be leaving the club come the summer.
Speaking to the official club wbesite, Macey said:
"I am absolutely loving playing for Hibs.
“I feel like I've settled in really well and that's a credit to the staff and the players.
“Everyone around the club made me feel comfortable and within two or three days, I played against Celtic.
“After a few training sessions I felt really happy and I've kicked on since.
"I'm enjoying it and I'm really happy."
Hibs boss Jack Ross added:
“I’m really pleased because he’s made a brilliant impression since he came,” he added.
“When he came here in January, we both understood it was an opportunity for him to impress us and for us to assess him and he’s settled in really well.
“He’s been really good in training and he’s been terrific in the games he’s played as well, so he’s excited.
“For him to grasp that opportunity, looking forward to the end of this season and into next season, is great.
“Obviously with Ofir leaving it puts us in a good position as well.”
Macey has looked a good, solid signing since arriving from Arsenal in January.
He is a big presence in the box, when crosses come in, and has looked pretty good at shot-stopping aswell, despite his 6ft7in frame.
Hibs have also, alredy tied down young Polish keeper Kevin Dabrowski on a new deal, and it, in our opinion, points towards those two fighting it out for the No.1 jersey at Easter Road next season.
