Martin has been with Hibs since 2007 and has risen through the ranks from youth level. However, he has been unable to hold down a regular starting spot at a time when Hibs have had one of their strongest midfield casts in years. He spent last season on loan at Arbroath.

Martin started Hibs’ 3-2 win over Ross County in the Betfred Cup on August 19, but was replaced at half-time by head coach Neil Lennon. In total, he has 15 appearances for the club, scoring once.
