Wales midfielder Tudur-Jones will sign a two-year contract at Easter Road when he leaves Inverness later this summer.

And McGivern, who enjoyed a successful loan period at Hibs last season, will sign a permanent deal once his Manchester City contract expires.

The news ends Tudur-Jones' two-year association with Caley Thistle, and he told the Hibs website: "The move is a fresh challenge and one I'm really excited about.

"Throughout my career, I've always chased new challenges and not wanted to stand still. Now I see Hibs as a challenge for myself - to help the club finish as high as possible in the table."

Hibs will be in the Europa League qualifying rounds after finishing as Scottish Cup runners-up to Celtic.

And Tudur-Jones said: "I'm looking forward to playing in Europe. It's something a little bit different and it will be a great experience.

"Playing against different teams from different countries will be great for the continued development of the squad and it's something to get excited about."

Northern Ireland left-back McGivern said: "I'm really pleased to have agreed to join Hibs on a permanent basis and I'm excited about what we can achieve as a group next season.

"There were other options available for me down south in England, but I wanted to stay with Hibs and continue my development at the club."

Meanwhile, former Hibs striker Eoin Doyle has completed his move to Chesterfield after signing a two-year contract with the League Two side.

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
