Hibernian have signed former Dundee United midfielder Scott Allan on a two-year contract.

The Scotland Under-21 international joins Hibs following his release by West Brom after failing to make a first-team appearance since his move from Tannadice in January 2012.

The former Rangers target had loa n spells with Portsmouth, Milton Keynes Dons and Birmingham.

Hibs head coach Alan Stubbs said: "We're delighted that we've been able to add Scott to our squad - he is a top-quality player with immense potential.

"He's an outstanding young player with a bright future, so the fact he has agreed to come here to Hibernian is a tremendous coup for everybody at the club.

"Scott will add something different to what we already have within our squad - he is an attacking midfielder, who can both create and score goals.

"He's young, but has already gained a lot of experience from his time at Dundee United and also down south, so he will be equipped for the demands of the upcoming season."

Allan's most recent loan experience was a disappointing one - he fell out of favour with Blues manager Lee Clark and did not play between August and his surprise recall in April.

But he said: "I believe I learned a lot from my time down south - both personally and professionally - but I had my mind set on a move back home to Scotland.

"At this point in my career, I want to play football as regularly as possible and be closer to home and the move here to Hibs ticks all the boxes."
