The 16-year-old is set to sign for the Hibees in a reported £130,000 deal and follow his dad to Edinburgh.

His father is new Hibs assistant manager Jamie McAllister, and it's thought the men from Easter Road have beaten off Aston Villa, Newcastle, Rangers and Celtic to land the midfielder.

He's expected to sign a 3-year-deal with the club and join the development side.
