City can confirm that defender Adam Jackson has signed for the club on a permanent deal from Hibernian.
The central defender joins the Club having gained experience both in the Sky Bet Championship and SPL.
Jackson started his youth career at Middlesborough where he made loan moves to Halifax Town, Coventry City and Hartlepool United. He then joined Barnsley in 2016 where he made 38 appearances in the Championship for the South Yorkshire side. His first goal for the Tykes came against Derby County in their 3-2 victory in the EFL Cup.
He then signed for Hibernian on a 2 year deal in 2019 where he made over 20 appearances including a Scottish League Cup Semi-Final versus Celtic. He netted 4 goals for the Edinburgh based side prior to the Covid-19 pandemic before signing for the Imps.
The former England youth international (capped at U16 through to U19) was really pleased to sign for the Club adding, “I’m buzzing to be here, it’s been on the cards for the last couple of weeks and I’m happy for it to finally get over the line.”
“I’d like to think I am honest, reliable and hard-working and I’ll give 100% every time I wear the shirt. I can also get the ball down and play in the style that we are looking to implement this season.”
Manager Michael Appleton was really pleased to sign the centre half adding, “Adam brings great experience to this group and I’m delighted to sign him. He is comfortable on the left and right at centre half and is a real asset in both boxes. I’m really looking forward to working with him.”
