Irish midfielder is signing number 6

Hibs have this afternoon confirmed their sixth signing of the summer transfer window.

Coventry City midfielder Gary Deegan has signed a one-year-deal at Easter Road for a nominal fee.

Fenlon knows Deegan well, having managed him at Bohemians before his switch to the then Championship club in 2010.

While at Coventry Deegan spent a whole season out injured following a stress fracture to his ankle, and returned during the final game of the 2010/11 season, and has struggled to hold down a first team spot since.

Deegan follows former Coventry team mate James McPake in joining the Hibees from the Sky Blues this summer.

A little fact that should put a wry smile on the faces of the Hibs support, Deegan's knickname??? - The Pitbull.

Welcome to the club Gary.
