Jonathon Spector has signed for Hibernian on a deal until the end of the season.
The former Manchester United, West Ham and Birmingham City defender is a full international for the United States and will provide cover at right-back and centre back.
Hibs head coach Paul Heckingbottom said on the club’s website: “Jonathan offers experience, quality and versatility in an area where we haven’t had much cover recently.
“He’s made a great impression on everyone since he arrived and it’s easy to see why he’s had the career he’s had.
“We look forward to having him as an option when we’re back from the international break.”
Hibs are sixth in the Scottish Premiership, five points behind Edinburgh rivals Hearts.

Spector said: “I’m excited to be here. With the MLS season finishing I’ve been off for a little bit but I’ve been here for a couple of weeks now and it’s been a great transition period to get used to everything.
“I understand the expectations of the manager and I was able to get a feel for the club having gone to a couple of the home matches.”
