Hibs have landed
Kilmarnock striker Colin Nish on a pre-contract agreement it has been revealed tonight.

The 6ft 4in striker is a life long Hibs fan and has landed the move of his dreams to Easter Road.

The 26-year-old will move to Hibs in the summer, but there is still a chance the Hibees could land the striker this transfer window, if they can match
Kilmarnock's fee.

It's not yet apparent how long a deal the big forward has signed for the Edinburgh giants, but it looks like the end of the road for Hibs French forward Mickael Antoine-Curier, who is out of contract at the end of the season and is interesting Dundee.

Killie boss Jim Jeffries has spoken of his disappointment at losing the club's top scorer, he said:

"We got informed of that this morning,

"Players are now allowed to go at the end of their contracts and he's had a few offers and he's agreed to go to Hibernian.

"It's obviously a blow, the lad has done well for us since we brought him to the club and we lost Boyd, then Naismith and now we have lost another good scorer in Colin Nish.

"But that's one of the problems when you're at a club like Kilmarnock, if you bring players through and they are fairly successful then they are targets for other clubs."
