Hasenhuttl told the club’s official website, “Joe is a player with many qualities to his game, and we are very excited to welcome him to the squad in time for the pre-season trip to Austria.

“We believe Joe can bring energy and creativity to our side. Feeling comfortable in so many different positions is very helpful for a manager and shows he has a high level of football intelligence, with the ability to take on new information quickly.

“He has played a lot of games already in his career, at a very high level, and his performances in the Europa League prove he has the quality to play in the Premier League. This is a big ambition for him, and he is hungry to show everybody he can do it.”

During his time at Rangers, Aribo helped them win their first league title in 10 years after he joined from Charlton Athletic.  

The Nigerian scored 26 goals in 149 appearances during his three seasons in Scotland.
