Hibs set to release young striker Lewis Allan

Last updated : 30 April 2019 By Steve Forbes

Hibs have apparently told striker Lewis Allan that he hs no future at the club.

The 22-year-old has been told by boss Paul Heckingbottom that his contract at Easter Road will not be renewed.

Despite being a pretty prolific scorer in the development league, Allan has struggled to replicate that form in the first-team, having made 8 appearances without finding the net.

He has also had loan spells with Dunfermline Athletic, Livingston, Forfar and Edinburgh City, with not much luck in front of goal.

Overall he has played 59 games and scored 6 goals across all his career appearances.

However, Hibs-Mad understands that a few Scottish League One and Two sides are eyeing a move for the youngster, with offers likely.

The Hibees U20 side were set to be playing a friendly tonight against Stirling Albion last night and it's expected to be Allan's last involvement with the club.
