Fraser Fyvie has signed a two year contract with Hibs.

The 22-year-old former Aberdeen midfielder moved to Easter Road in January from Wigan and proceeded to record 17 appearances, scoring twice.

Speaking to Hibs TV, Fyvie said: “I’m delighted to sign the deal and I’m massively excited about what we can achieve next season.

“When I first came to the club, I signed a six-month deal and now I’ve been given the opportunity to sign a two year contract – I’d like to thank the manager and the club for the faith they’ve shown in me.

“Moving back up to Scotland has been really beneficial to my career, the manager gave me a platform to play games and I wanted to repay him by committing my future to the club for the next two years.

“I also wanted to get everything sorted out as quickly as possible, so that I could plan ahead with my family. This was an easy and exciting decision to make.

“I think we just missed out last season; everyone came away from it disappointed, but I’m confident that next season we can take the extra step and go up.

“Everyone within the squad believes we’ve started to build something special here at the club and now we want to kick on and achieve success.”

Head Coach Alan Stubbs said: “We’re delighted that Fraser has agreed to commit his future to the club – he’s a quality player with huge promise.

“His decision to sign a new deal is a real coup for Hibernian and underlines our ambitions for the future.

“We’re confident that Fraser will continue to progress and mature into an outstanding midfielder and the fact he has decided to continue his development here at Hibernian will give everybody a lift.”

Chief Executive Leeann Dempster said: “This is more positive news and we’re delighted Fraser has agreed to stay here at the club.

“Fraser has made a commitment to Hibernian and it would be brilliant to see supporters following suit by committing to a 2015/16 season ticket.

“It is important that we build continuity at the Club and that supporters understand that their contribution whether from season tickets, buying shares or joining HSL can make a huge difference and allows myself and Alan to plan the shape of the team.”
