Hibernian have announced the signing of midfielder Luke Amos on an 18-month deal after a successful trial period. 

The 26-year-old, who came through the Tottenham Hotspur academy, made his debut for the Premier League side in 2018 before moving to Queens Park Rangers.

Amos has been a free agent since leaving the English Championship club in the summer and had been training with the Spurs under-23 team in a bid to keep his fitness levels up. 

On the signing, Hibs head coach Nick Montgomery said: “Luke found himself not signing with anyone at the start of the season, which can happen, but he got himself back fit training with Tottenham’s Under-23s and he’s hungry to push on his career.

“He’s a quality midfielder with years of experience in the English Championship and at 26 he has his best years ahead of him.

“When I initially spoke to Luke about him coming to the club, it was important for him to come to Hibs and feel that it was the right place for him to continue his football journey. 

“He will add competition for places, and he has fit straight into the group dynamic.  He will add real depth to our midfield and will help our push for this second half of the season.

"We are all looking forward to working with him.”
