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.
