Hibernian's David Wotherspoon has signed a two-year contract extension to keep him at the club until June 2013.

The 19-year-old has become a first team regular this season, fitting in at right back, although his preferred position is in midfield.

"It's an exciting club to be at, so I'll just keep working as hard as I can to keep playing first team football," Wotherspoon told the club website.

"The club has given me a great opportunity and I love it here."

Wotherspoon has made successful transition from Hibs' all-conquering under-19 side, scoring on his debut against St Mirren on the opening day of the Scottish Premier League campaign.

And his performances were rewarded with a Scotland Under-21 debut in Azerbaijan last month.

Easter Road manager John Hughes added: "This is brilliant news for the club and I am personally delighted for David.

"Although he has just broken into the first team this season, he has been one of our most consistent performers.

"This contract extension is just reward for the progress he has made and his attitude to hard work - he really is a model professional who has all the attributes to go far in the game.

"This club provides a fantastic environment to develop young professionals, and it's great to see players like David coming through to ensure that we continue to build a squad to compete at the highest level."
