Last updated : 14 January 2008 By Steve Forbes

Former Hibs captain Ian Murray IS wanted back at Easter Road according to his agent.

As we revealed back in November (see link below), Hibs will try to initially sign the former club youth product on loan until the end of the season.

New Hibs boss Mixu Paatelainen is hoping to bring his former team mate back to the capital before the window closes, but there is still a chance it could be a permanent move rather than a loan.

Falkirk and Brighton have already expressed an interest in the Scotland international, but his agent, former Hibs keeper Jim McArthur, has revealed that Hibs ARE interested and that Murray would prefer at move back to his boyhood heroes.

Speaking to SKY SPORTS, McArthur said:

"Hibs are interested in signing Ian on loan.

"Ian would be keen on a move back to Easter Road as he just wants to be playing again.

"Falkirk are also interested and it is now up to Norwich to decide what they want to do."
