“He has played in England at a number of different clubs and played against some very good players, and I believe that his experience can only be beneficial to our squad, and his talent will be a good asset to have as we strive to achieve our goals this campaign.”

Liverpool-born Dagnall enjoyed his most productive season in 2009-10 when he scored 20 league goals for Rochdale to help them win promotion from English League 2.

He said: “I’m very excited to be joining the club. I know we are doing really well this season and after coming down to speak to the manager and coaching staff I’m really looking forward to joining in with the lads.

“Hibs are a big club, everyone knows about Hibs. I can see they’ve been doing well and they’re competing at the top of the league with Rangers, Hibs is a team everyone keeps an eye out for.”

“Hopefully the manager sees something in me that the other players haven’t got here and that’s why he is bringing me in.

“You’ll get hard work out of me, I’ll work my socks off in each and every game and hopefully get the goals that I want to get.”
