Hibernian have signed winger Ireland international Daryl Horgan from Preston North End for an undisclosed fee.

Horgan has signed a three-year contract and could make his debut against St Johnstone in the Ladbrokes Premiership on Sunday.

The Republic of Ireland international helped Dundalk reach the Champions League play-offs and the Europa League group stages before signing for Preston.

"I am delighted to have made the move to Hibs," Horgan told Hibernian's official website. "I've spoken to the manager and am excited for his plans for the season ahead.

"Obviously the boys have started well in Europe and the league - they had a good season last year and the ambition is there to follow that up with another successful year.

"I'm ready to play and looking forward to trying to break into the team."

Hibs head coach Neil Lennon added: "He's one we've been keen on for a long time and it's a real coup to get him over the line.

"Daryl will give us a real threat going forward and some strength out wide - we had been looking to add in that area and I'm delighted with the options we now have.

"He has power and pace and will hopefully give us another dimension to our play in the final third."
