Adam Jackson has completed a permanent transfer from Hibs to Lincoln City for an undisclosed fee, subject to international clearance, with the Easter Road side holding an interest in any future sale.

The 26-year-old centre-back moved to Easter Road last summer and appeared 22 times in total for Hibs, scoring four goals.

He featured more prominently towards the end of last season, performing well in the heart of defence but expressed a desire to return to England and Hibs were able to accommodate that request.

A statement on the club website reads: “We’d like to thank Adam for his efforts and wish him all the best for his new challenge.”

The former England youth international (capped at U16 through to U19) was pleased to sign for the Imps and told the club website: “I’m buzzing to be here, it’s been on the cards for the last couple of weeks and I’m happy for it to finally get over the line.”

“I’d like to think I am honest, reliable and hard-working and I’ll give 100% every time I wear the shirt. I can also get the ball down and play in the style that we are looking to implement this season.”

Manager Michael Appleton was really pleased to sign the centre half adding, “Adam brings great experience to this group and I’m delighted to sign him. He is comfortable on the left and right at centre half and is a real asset in both boxes. I’m really looking forward to working with him.”
