David Gray, Darren McGregor, Lewis Stevenson, Marvin Bartley and Ross Laidlaw have all committed to Hibs for a further two years.

Club captain David Gray has made 122 appearances for the club and famously scored the winning goal in the William Hill Scottish Cup Final victory over Rangers as well as helping to guide Hibs back to the top tier of Scottish football.

Darren McGregor’s performances this season earned him a place in the PFA Team of the Year as well as scoring five goals for the team he grew up supporting – including two in the 3-0 win over Queen of the South that sealed promotion back to the Ladbrokes Premiership.

Last season Lewis Stevenson made history by becoming the only player in the Club’s history to have winners’ medals for both the Scottish League Cup and Scottish Cup. This year he has played a major role in the Ladbrokes Championship title win.

Marvin Bartley’s presence in the team has helped the team achieve a high number of clean sheets this campaign and his performances against Hearts in particular have made him a firm favourite amongst the Hibs’ fans.

Ross Laidlaw has  proven himself to be an able deputy to Ofir Marciano in the 2016/17 season. Making his debut in the UEFA Europa League tie away to Brondby, Ross’ performance helped Hibernian to a 1-0 victory in Denmark with a series of fine saves. He has played 18 times for the Club and kept seven clean sheets.

The club also confirmed that James Keatings will join Dundee United following the expiration of his contract.

A spokesperson said: “James played a significant role in the club’s league and cup successes over the past two seasons and we would like to wish him well in the future.”
