However, he had expressed a wish to return south of the Border and has joined the League One side with immediate effect.

A statement from the Easter Road side read: “Adam Jackson has completed a permanent transfer to Lincoln City for an undisclosed fee, subject to international clearance, with Hibernian holding an interest in any future sale.

“He’d expressed a desire to return to England and we were able to accommodate that request.

“We’d like to thank Adam for his efforts and wish him all the best for his new challenge.”

Jackson told Lincoln’s website: “I’m buzzing to be here, it’s been on the cards for the last couple of weeks and I’m happy for it to finally get over the line.

“I’d like to think I am honest, reliable and hard-working and I’ll give 100 per cent every time I wear the shirt.

"I can also get the ball down and play in the style that we are looking to implement this season.”

Imps boss Michael Appleton, linked with the Hibs managerial vacancy before Paul Heckingbottom was appointed in February last year, added: “Adam brings great experience to this group and I’m delighted to sign him.

"He is comfortable on the left and right at centre half and is a real asset in both boxes. I’m really looking forward to working with him.”

A former England under-19 internationalist, Jackson had spells with Middlesbrough, Halifax, Coventry City and Hartlepool before joining the Tykes in 2016.

He signed a two-year deal with Hibs in May 2019 and found the net in Scottish Premiership matches against St Johnstone, Ross County, and Kilmarnock as well as getting on the scoresheet in the 5-2 Scottish Cup quarter-final win against Inverness Caledonian Thistle in February.
