Hibernian have signed Fraser Fyvie until the end of the season after he was released from his Wigan contract.
The 21-year-old moved to Wigan from Aberdeen in 2012 but featured rarely for the Latics and had loan spells at Yeovil and Shrewsbury last season.
Fyvie made over 60 appearances after making his Dons debut in 2009 and has been capped for Scotland up to Under-21 level.
"I'm really pleased to sign for Hibs," Fyvie told the Hibs website.
"As soon as I heard about the opportunity it excited me.
"I was keen to head back up to Scotland and Hibs are a club going in the right direction, so everything about this move made sense.
"My first goal will be to earn a place in the starting line-up and then I want to help Hibs to achieve promotion.
"I can't wait to get started here at Hibs and I've been really impressed with the manager's vision for the future."
Manager Alan Stubbs added: "We're absolutely delighted to be able to add Fraser to the squad - he is a young player with tremendous quality and potential.
"It's a great opportunity for Fraser and we're delighted to give him an opportunity to be a part of what we're trying to achieve here at Hibernian.
"His arrival underlines our ambitions to kick on; it strengthens our squad and adds extra competition for places which will enable us to finish the season as strong as possible.
"Overall I'm delighted with the business we've managed to complete during the January transfer window and Fraser's arrival is another signing that I believe will excite our fans."
