Jackson Irvine has signed for German side St. Pauli after the former Hull City midfielder’s Hibs contract expired.

The Australian international signed a short-term deal with Hibs in the winter after leaving Hull City in 2020. He played regularly for Jack Ross’ cinch Premiership team last season and was offered the chance to return to Hibs for the 2021/22 campaign, but he will instead move to Germany.

St. Pauli director of sport Andreas Bornemann said: “We’re delighted to have persuaded Jackson Irvine to join us. He’s at his prime age for a footballer and is an absolute mentality player who works extremely hard and comes with international experience. He’s at home in a variety of midfield positions. Signing him gives us many more options.”

 

Head coach Timo Schultz added: “Jackson Irvine gives us more flexibility in midfield because he can play both an attacking and a defensive role. He also brings a certain physicality and rugged style of play that will add stability, and his experience will benefit our younger players.”
