The former St Mirren and Ross County defender, 25, is Paul Heckingbottom's 10th summer signing.

Naismith he didn't "need a sales pitch" because he was "desperate" to sign.

"It was a stressful day - it seemed to be on then off, on then off. I think I lost a few hairs on my head over it, just trying to get it done," he said.

"Thankfully the two clubs got there in the end and it's just good to be back in Scotland. It's a really talented squad so hopefully we can kick on and do well."

Manager Heckingbottom added: "Jason is someone who knows the league and has done well up here before.

"He's a competitive player who will add real presence to our squad. Jason also showed his enthusiasm to come and play for Hibernian by helping push through the deal in time."

Meanwhile, Hibernian have confirmed defender Sean Mackie has left the club to go on a season-long loan to Dundee.

"This is a great opportunity for me, and I have to thank both clubs for getting it through," said the 20-year-old.
