Thomson snubbed English move
Kevin Thomson has revealed that he snubbed the opportunity to
remain in England in favour of staying at Hibernian.
The 28-year-old midfielder has penned a one-year deal with the
Edinburgh-based outfit, having spent the second half of last season
with the club on non-contract terms.
He joins on a free after seeing his contract at Middlesbrough
cancelled by mutual consent in January.
The Scotland international is delighted to have reached an
agreement with a club that means so much to him – as he graduated
out of Hibs’ academy system at the start of his senior career.
He admits he had other options to consider south of the border,
but claims the opportunity to remain true to his roots was too good
to turn down.
Thomson said in the Sunday Mail: “There were offers on the table
from clubs down south but I knocked them back because I had my mind
set on staying with Hibs.”
