Midfielder signs two-year-deal

It has been revealed this afternoon, that Hibs midfielder Lewis Stevenson has signed a new contract with the club.

The Hibees youth product has signed a new two-year-deal at Easter Road, and that deal will see him mark ten years in the first team on it's conclusion.

25-year-old Stevenson made his debut back in 2005, against Ayr United in a Scottish League Cup tie, at 17 years of age.

Stevenson has gone on to make over 150 appearances for the club, scoring 1 goal.

The little midfielder said:

"I'm really pleased to have agreed another contract with Hibs - this is a special club and I feel privileged to be a part of it.

"If somebody had told me when I first joined Hibs as a 14-year-old that I would still be at the club 11 years later then I wouldn't have believed them.

"I'm happy to play wherever the manager decides I should play - I will always give my all for Hibs, although I've yet to play in goals or up front!"

Stevenson is the last surviving member of the Hibees 2007 Scottish League Cup winning side - a match he won man-of-the-match in as an 19-year-old, as the Hibees beat Kilmarnock 5-1 at Hampden to lift the trophy.

He was also voted the Supporter's Player of the Year last season.

Well done Lewis, well deserved.
