Ghana international defender Francis Dickoh has signed for Scottish Premier League side Hibernian from Utrecht on a one-year deal.

The 27-year-old Danish-born centre-half has been with Utrecht for four years since moving from FC Nordsjaelland.

Dickoh last represented Ghana in 2008 and has not played for Utrecht in the Eredivisie this season.

"I am an ambitious player and want to fulfill my career goals here at Hibernian," said Dickoh.

Dickoh has been capped 13 times for Ghana and insists he is now looking forward to starting the next chapter in his career in Scotland.

"I am really pleased to have signed for Hibernian, a big Scottish club with a great stadium and excellent training facilities," said Dickoh.

"As soon as I was taken around the Training Centre, I knew that I wanted to be part of Hibernian and I think Edinburgh is a beautiful city, a perfect place to live.

"The stadium is a great setting for a successful team and I'm very excited about what we can achieve at the club."

Hibernian manager John Hughes said: "It is great to have signed Francis - he is a quality player who has proven himself in both Denmark and Holland.

"He will bring a good physical presence and experience to our defence. I'm looking for him to be a strong character in the dressing room.

"Francis has been about and played at international level - he can become an important player for Hibernian."
