Hibs set to sign defender Paul Quinn

Hibs boss Alan Stubbs is close to landing former Motherwell defender Paul Quinn after his release from Doncaster Rovers.

The 29-year-old former Motherwell player has been training at the Hibees East Mains training complex, and talks over a deal with the former Scotland squad man are said to be already at and advanced stage, with the player possibly being signed in time to make his debut against Dumbarton at Easter Road on Saturday.

If he signs, Quinn is likely to be competition for David Gray at right back, but he can also play at centre half and at right wing.

Quinn started his career in 2002 at Motherwell, where he played over 180 games and scored 4 goals.

He then moved to Cardiff City for £400,000 in 2009 and played 60 games for the Championship side scoring 1 goal.

His next port of call was a move to League One side Doncaster Rovers in 2012, where he spent two seasons, playing 75 times and scoring 3 goals.  He won the League One title with Doncaster in his first season, before playing in the Championship last season and then his release this summer.
