Last updated : 03 September 2019 By Steve Forbes

Young Hibs defender Sean Mackie has signed for Championship side Dundee on loan.

The left full-back has joined the Dens Park side on a deal until the end of the season.

20-year-old Mackie has played for the Hibees four times this season, with his last appearance against Rangers at Ibrox in a 6-1 drubbing, a game he was sent off in.

Ex Hibs captain and Dundee boss Jame McPake said:

“We’re delighted to get it over the line. Sean is a player that I have seen progressing at Hibs from the Development team to the 1st team over the past few years and he has always impressed me.”

“Sean is highly rated and adds to the depth of our squad with real quality.”

Editor's View:

A strange one leaving Easter Road.

It leaves Lewis Stevenson as the only recognised left back in the squad.

However, Tom James, Steven Whittaker and Joe Newell have all played there before if an emergency occured.
