OFFICIAL: Hibernian sign Arsenal goalkeeper Matt Macey

Scottish side Hibernian have completed the signing of goalkeeper Matt Macey on a contract that will run until the end of the season. 

Macey leaves Arsenal after seven years and now will fight for the number one position at Hibernian with Ofir Marciano and Kevin Dabrowski. The 26-year-old signed for the Gunners in 2013 from Bristol and made two first-team appearances, both in the 2017/18 season.

"We are delighted to be able to bring a goalkeeper of Matt’s caliber to the club and I’m looking forward to seeing him challenge Ofir and Kevin for a place in the team," said the Hibernian coach Jack Ross. 

"It provides us with real strength in depth in the goalkeeping department as we build towards the second half of the season."

"I’m really excited to get going. I spoke to the gaffer and Craig Samson but, to be honest, my mind was already made up to come," he said. 

"I’m grateful for every experience I had at Arsenal but I’m hungry to play first-team football. I know that won’t be handed to me here, so it’s up to me to show what I can do in training and take it from there."

"No-one has to tell me what a big club Hibernian is, in a competitive league. I’m looking forward to getting started."

Macey has enjoyed a number of loan spells, the most recent being with Plymouth Argyle for the 2018/19 campaign.
