Hibs this afternoon announced that they had signed Millwall winger Filipe Morais.

A www.Hibernian-mad.co.uk EXCLUSIVE on Wednesday. (see link below)


Morais, 21, made his debut in this afternoon's 1-0 friendly win over Middlesbrough and looked very impressive when he stepped off the bench in the second half.

The Portuguese U-21 international has signed a two-year-contract at Easter Road and becomes John Collins' SEVENTH summer capture.

The Hibs boss told the OFFICIAL club website:

"I have been aware of Filipe for some time now, he came very highly recommended by contacts at Chelsea and I saw him for myself last season when he was on loan to St Johnstone both before the CIS Cup match and in that game itself. He is very strong while comfortable on the ball, I would say he is exactly the type of player we are looking for at Hibernian and we are delighted that he has agreed to join us."
