Jamie Maclaren has joined Hibs on loan until the end of the season.

The striker, 24, signs from Bundesliga II side SV Darmstadt 98, and has met up with the squad at their winter training base in the Algarve.

Jamie was born in Melbourne and is an Australian internationalist with 5 caps to his name, having previously represented Scotland at under 19 level.

Jamie told Hibs Media: “I am delighted to be joining Hibernian for the rest of the season.

“I’ve spoken to the manager and he has high hopes for the second half of the season, and hopefully I can contribute to that.

“It’s a big few months for me personally with the World Cup on the horizon, so I’m very motivated to get some goals and hopefully force my way into the final squad for Russia.”
