Impressive loan spell earns McPake Hibernian deal

James McPake has signed for Hibernian on a free transfer after impressing on loan from Coventry City last season. Hibs boss Pat Fenlon said: "It's absolutely fantastic that we've been able to bring James back to the club.

"We have had to be patient and persistent, but all the work has been worthwhile."

"Every team needs a strong leader and James is my captain," Fenlon told his club website. "He leads by example and sets himself high standards.

"He made a really positive impact during his loan spell and, moving forward, he will play a major role in the ongoing development of the club over the next few seasons."

The 28 year old defender is delighted to be making the switch.

"From day one, I felt at home at the club and I developed a special relationship with the supporters," he said.

"I'm excited to be part of what will be a new-look Hibernian team and I'm looking forward to playing my part in bringing success back to this football club."
