Adam Jackson completes move to Hibernian FC
Congratulations to client Adam Jackson who has completed his transfer to Hibernian today.
The 25-year-old centre-back sailed through his medical earlier at the Hibernian Training Centre and has completed the formalities of his move to Easter Road, putting pen to paper on a 2-year deal.
Adam, who was a guest of the club at the last Edinburgh Derby, heads north under freedom of contract following a successful spell with Barnsley and our former England youth international – capped at Under-16 through to Under-19 level – jumped at the chance to work with Head Coach Paul Heckingbottom again.
It was Paul who initially took our man to Oakwell after he worked his way through the youth ranks at Middlesbrough before loan stints at Halifax Town, Coventry City and Hartlepool United.
Heckingbottom said: “I’m really pleased we have been able to get the deal for Adam over the line.
“The fact it’s come so early in the summer is hopefully indicative of the work that has gone on and is going on behind the scenes here. It also shows Adam’s own enthusiasm to play for Hibernian.
“I know all about Adam’s qualities having signed him in the first place for Barnsley and he was one I was set on bringing to Easter Road.
Jacko spoke to Hibs TV after being put through his paces at the training centre.
He said: “I’m delighted to be joining Hibernian. With the stature of the club and having worked with Paul previously it was a no-brainer for me.
“I know what he expects of me and I know what I can deliver for him.
“I obviously got a glimpse of what to expect when I was up for the game against Hearts and I’m looking forward to experience it all myself when I report back with the rest of the boys in three weeks.”
Congratulations Adam, go an be exceptional.
