Obita signs new Hibs deal

Jordan Obita has signed a new contract to stay at Hibs until 2026 after impressing in his first season at Easter Road.

The 29-year-old joined from Wycombe Wanderers in the summer, signing an initial two-year deal with the option of a further year.

Obita scored his second goal for the Leith club in Saturday's win over Livingston, with the first coming in memorable fashion at home to Luzern in the Europa Conference League.

Hibs boss Nick Montgomery said: “Jordan is an important part of the squad. He has been one of our most consistent performers all season and brings vital experience to the team.

“He has a young family and is really enjoying his football at Hibs, so I am delighted Jordan has agreed to commit his future to the club.”
