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.

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

I

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
