Scottish side Hibernian has announced the signing of Dutch left-back Miquel Nelom on a one-year deal.

The 27-year-old, who spent last season on loan with Sparta Rotterdam, was a free agent after leaving Feyenoord this summer. Nelom has now surfaced in Scotland, joining Hibernian on a one-year contract.

Nelom told the official Hibs website, “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.”
