@RayForsyth85: “This has got to be where those Walcott rumours came from.”

@JackGillies6: “Welcome to Hibs JoJo great to see us getting in a decent keeper who also has international experience! Marshall had a bad end to the season and we need someone who can challenge him for number 1 spot. Hope Max Boruc comes in as well.”

@SirNotTomFarmer: “Looking After Jojo.”

@BatmanGilmour: “Welcome to hibs! Only 11am, surely time for another signing the day.”

@Rory1875: “I back him but kinda getting worried about these league 1 signings.”

@JDHibs: “Signing experienced 1st team ready players nice & early in the window. Hibs? What are you playing at?”

@ThinkingFantasy: “And it's official - Some serious competition for David Marshall this season. Monitoring pre-season friendlies is going to be important to work out who starts in the Europa Qualifiers!”

@blondelmo1888: “16 games in English league one, only one season of consistent football in his entire career (and that was league 2). Surely Marshall keeps his spot then?”
