Ghana goalkeeper Jojo Wollacott has joined Hibernian FC on a permanent basis, the Scottish Premier League club announced on Friday.
Exactly one year after moving from Swindon Town to Charlton Athletic in English League One, the 26-year-old has now advanced to top-tier football, though in neighboring Scotland.
Wollacott joins Hibs “for undisclosed terms and has put pen to paper on a three-year deal,” an official announcement from the club, which will compete in the 2023/24 Uefa Conference League, read.

Wollacott has already teamed up with his teammates to get ready for the forthcoming season after returning from international duty with the Black Stars this week.
Having come through Bristol City’s Academy, Wollacott has recently been competing in the third and fourth tiers of English football. He made 20 appearances for Charlton Athletic last season.
Alongside football, he’s also been competing regularly on the international front with Ghana, so far he’s earned 11 senior caps.
Hibernian FC Manager Lee Johnson commented: “We’re delighted to bring Jojo to the Club and I’m looking forward to working with him again.
“He’s a player I’ve known for some time and it’s great to see that he’s starting to fulfil his potential. He now has over 100 games under his belt and has played on the international stage with Ghana.
“He’s an athletic, brave, and confident goalkeeper, and with big competitions coming up it’s important we’re strong in the goalkeeping department.”
