The 22-year-old has been mulling over the offer for a number of months, spending the second half of last season at Plymouth Argyle having become frustrated at the lack of first-team football in Edinburgh.
But now, he insists, he’s looking forward to the challenge of bidding for promotion under new Hibs boss Neil Lennon.
He said: “I’m just delighted to finally sign the contract and work with ther new manager and the new people he is bringing in.
“I’m looking forward to the new season which is going to be a big one. It’s going to be challenging, but it’s going to be exciting as well.”
