Hibs midfielder Dylan McGeouch set to sign for Blackburn Rovers

Blackburn Rovers are closing in on the signing of Hibs midfielder Dylan McGeouch.

According to the Mail Online, the newly promoted English Championship side have apparently beaten off a number of other clubs to land the player on a pre-contract agreement.

McGeouch has been outstanding for the Hibees this season and won several Player of the Season awards from both the supporters and the club.

The 25-year-old Scotland squad player is expected to sign a deal with the Lancashire club in the coming weeks, meaning this weekend's clash with Rangers at Easter Road will be his last in a green and white shirt.

Hibs offered him a new deal but couldn't compete with the wages on offer.

McGeouch first signed for the Hibees on a loan deal from Celtic in 2014, before making the move permanent a year later.

Despite struggling with injury at times, he has managed over 100 games for Hibs and was part of the legendary 2016 Scottish Cup-winning side.

A big blow for the men from Easter Road.
