He joins Scott Allan, Adam Jackson and Joe Newell in arriving at Easter Road as Paul Heckingbottom puts his stamp on the team. The quartet provide the Englishman with different options, both in terms of personnel and system with further recruits likely to follow. We take a look at how the Hibs boss could set his side up with the team built around Scott Allan.

The Israeli was in top form during the second half of the campaign.
Signed a new long-term deal and is still a hugely influential player on and off the pitch.
Will likely continue his progression in the first team after recovering from a serous injury.

The captain will be hoping for a more settled season than the last campaign.
Who else?! Bring in Andy Robertson and Stevenson would see him off.
Despite missing half of the season Martin Boyle still scored highly in a number of statistical areas. His pace, dribbling and productivity will see him back into the starting XI.
A danger from distance and was a frequent presence under Heckingbottom.
This is a problem area which Paul Heckingbottom is likely prioritising. With Marvin Bartley and Mark Milligan having departed Hibs have few options to play as a defensive-minded midfielder.
The Irishman had a fine first season number wise and became a big influence as the season went on.
The creative midfielder has returned home once more. The ex-Celtic player is in great shape and should take his place at the tip of the midfield.
Signed for a few of around 350k, he will unlikely be sitting on the bench.
The Polish goalkeeper may go on loan and Hibs have been linked with goalkeepers to provide Ofir Marciano with competition.
The centre-back will be fighting for his place in the team.
Will provide further competition for the centre-back position.
The Lithuanian is an excellent option in the squad.
The winger has arrived to provide more pace and verve. Won't be content with a role as super sub as he was at Rotherham United.
The versatile attacker will be part of the first-team squad as was confirmed by Paul Heckingbottom at the end of the season.
Has been linked with a move away, would be able to play the lone striker role ahead of Allan or be partnered with Doidge.
Heckingbottom doesn't have a big squad with Oli Shaw, Jamie Gullan and Sean Mackie has possible other options.
Has today (Wednesday) completed his move to Easter Read and will provide competition across the backline.
The Belgian would be welcomed back with open arms and provide the midfield with a different dimension. Hibs face competition from clubs in Italy.
