Hibs chase Kevin Kyle

Last updated : 21 June 2012 By Steve Forbes

Former Hearts striker Kevin Kyle has today revealed that a move across the Edinburgh divide could be on the cards.

The 31-year-old was released by the Tynecastle club following hip surgery last season, and as yet doesn't have a club for next season.

The Scotland international has now revealed that Hibs boss Pat Fenlon could be keen on taking him to Easter Road.

The former Sunderland and Kilmarnock man said:

"I returned from honeymoon and had a message on my phone from Billy, who said Hibs boss Pat Fenlon had asked him to give me a call.

"Billy knows me well from when we were both at Hearts and he was assistant to Jim Jefferies, and he wanted to know what my situation was for next season.

"I'll speak to Hibs and take it from there but the priority is to get a good pre-season under my belt and get back to a level I know I can play at."

Hibs boss Fenlon is currently in the process of re-building a threadbare squad for next season, and has been linked to a number of players.

The Hibees are said to be closing in on Tim Clancy, Paul Cairney, James McPake and Crewe winger Byron Moore to name a few.
