New Signing | Tom Taiwo
The club are delighted to announce the signing of 28 year old midfielder Tom Taiwo.
Taiwo joined up with his new team mates for the first day of pre-season today after a four year spell at Falkirk. The Englishman arrived in Scotland at Hibernian following spells at Leeds United, Chelsea and Carlisle.
Manager Martin Canning said: ‘’Tom is a player we know well and he will add further energy and drive to our midfield. He’s a leader and a really consistent performer and those types are hard to come by. He knows the Scottish game really well which we felt was important too.
‘’We know it’s important to get the balance of the squad right and Tom adds to a strong core of experienced players we already have at the club with guys like Dougie, Darian and Woodsy.’’
Speaking to Accies TV, Taiwo said: ‘’I got a call from Martin a couple of weeks ago and from there it snowballed pretty quick with both sides eager to get it done. The main attraction was the way the manager spoke about the togetherness, the team spirit and how the boys fight for everything.’’
