Ofir Marciano was a firm favourite with fans last term

The 27-year-old spent last season at Easter Road on loan from FC Ashdod in his homeland, helping Neil Lennon’s side win the Championship title and a return to the Premiership.

Marciano and his professional model wife Shelly, who recently disclosed the couple are expecting their first child, had expressed their desire to remain in Edinburgh and negotiations have taken place throughout the summer before concluding in today’s deal.

Marciano is Hibs’ fourth summer signing following the arrivals of Danny Swanson, Simon Murray and Efe Ambrose.
