He also had loan spells with the likes of Barnet, Gillingham and Portsmouth and had a short spell with Oxford United.

He has played over 300 games in his career and brings a wealth of experience to a young Hibs squad.

Obita can also play on the left wing.

Speaking to the official webiste, Hibs boss Lee Johnson said:

“We’re excited to bring a player of Jordan’s experience to the Football Club.

“He gives us extra options all the way up the left hand-side and his ability from set plays will add an extra dimension to the squad. We look forward to working with him.”


It's good to have competition for living legend Lewis Stevenson.

Croatian defender Marijan Cabraja has returned to his homeland with Rijeka and this signing fills a big hole in the squad.
