Hibernian have dipped their toes into the transfer market once again with the signing of former Hamilton Accies goalkeeper Tomas Cerny until the end of the season.
The 29-year-old was keen to return to Scotland after spells with Bulgarian club CSKA Sofia and Greek side Ergotelis.
Speaking to the official Hibs website, Cerny said: “I’m really pleased to join Hibernian, this move was perfect for me for both personal and professional reasons. My wife is Scottish and we were keen to relocate back to Scotland, so when the opportunity came up to sign for Hibernian it ticked all the right boxes.
“I know a lot about the club – I’ve played against the team several times before – and I want to play my part in helping Hibernian to earn promotion. I want to do my best to help the club to achieve promotion into the Scottish Premiership.
“I’m very happy to be part of such a great club with a great history and a great set-up; I’m excited about the future.”
After announcing Cerny’s signing, Hibernian manager Alan Stubbs added: “We’re delighted to be able to get Tomas on board for the rest of the season. We’d been actively looking to bring in another keeper to provide extra competition and Tomas fits the bill. He adds further strength in depth for an important position in the team.”
Cerny could be available for selection to play against Raith Rovers on Saturday, subject to international clearance.
