GARY Deegan has left the Sky Blues to join up with former team mate James McPake at Scottish Premier League outfit Hibernian.

The 24-year-old made the move to Easter Road after agreeing a one-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Deegan joined the Sky Blues in 2010 from Irish side Bohemians and went on to make 43 appearance for the club, scoring five goals during two injury-plauged seasons.

He recently caused an uproar on Twitter for what appeared to be a pro IRA comment, which led to him being suspended from training for two weeks.

The move will see the midfielder reunited with former team mate McPake and manager Pat Fenlon – An opportunity Deegan revealed was too good to turn down.

"I'm absolutely delighted to have signed for Hibs," Deegan told the club's official website.

"Pat is a manager who gets the best out of me. When I played for him at Bohemians, I felt he improved me as a player and we enjoyed a lot of success before I earned my move to England.

"I know some of the players, especially James McPake. He has told me all about the club, its supporters and the massive potential that exists at the club.

"It is a perfect move for me and I'm excited about what we can achieve in the season ahead."
