Port Vale have finally bolstered their squad with the signing of Hibs defender Ryan McGivern.
McGivern has joined the club on a two-year contract after he negotiated his release from the remaining 12 months of his contract at Hibs.
24 year-old McGivern has 21 caps for Northern Ireland and can play either in the centre or left-hand side of defence.
McGivern’s signing means that Vale’s squad now numbers 16 after Colin Daniel joined the Valiants earlier this summer.
