Arsenal have confirmed that Matt Macey has signed for Hibernian.
The 26-year-old leaves the Gunners after nine years having made two appearances for the first team back in 2017.
Signed from Bristol Rovers in 2011, he rose steadily through the ranks to become the club’s third-choice stopper. Along the way, he went out on loan to Accrington Stanley, Luton Town and Plymouth Argyle.
Matt has penned an initial six-month contract with Hibs and is hoping to put his Arsenal experience to good use in the SPL.
“I’m really excited to get going,” he told the Hibernian website.
“I spoke to the gaffer [Jack Ross] and Craig Samson but, to be honest, my mind was already made up to come.
“I’m grateful for every experience I had at Arsenal but I’m hungry to play first-team football. I know that won’t be handed to me here, so it’s up to me to show what I can do in training and take it from there.
“No-one has to tell me what a big club Hibernian is, in a competitive league. I’m looking forward to getting started.”
Best of luck for the future, Matt.
