Hibs sign Dutch full back Miquel Nelom

Hibs have today confirmed the signing of Dutch full-back Miquel Nelom.

The 27-year-old has signed an initial one-year-deal at Easter Road and will be in contention for Saturday's trip to Dens Park to face Dundee.

Holland international Nelom signed on a free transfer after he left Feyenoord before the transfer window closed.

The Hibees have pulled off a coup landing a player with Champions League experience, who has also won the Eredivisie and the Dutch Cup.

Speaking to the official site, Nelom said:

“It feels great. I am happy to be here and to have the opportunity to start at Hibernian.

“My first impression of the manager is that he is very enthusiastic. I also saw him as a player at Celtic and I know a bit about him as a manager. I’m sure he will be a good manager for me.

“I have been here a couple of days now and it’s been great. I have heard a few stories about Edinburgh, now that I am here I can see the city centre and the countryside. It looks good.

“The club is even bigger than I thought. The facilities and the stadium are all nice. I can’t wait to play on the pitch and show what I’ve got.”
