Liam Fontaine has become the latest member of Neil Lennon’s Hibs squad to commit his future to the Easter Road club.

The 31-year-old central defender’s contract had expired but he’s joined team-mates David Gray, Darren McGregor, Lewis Stevenson, Marvin Bartley and Ross Laidlaw in agreeing a new deal.

Fontaine, who has played nearly 100 games for the Capital club since arriving as a free agent from Bristol City in the summer of 2017, has signed a one-year extension to his contract.

The London-born player was part of Hibs’ historic Scottish Cup winning side of 2016 but a calf injury – which ultimately required surgery – sustained at the end of February limited him to just 19 appearances last season.
