Hibs boss Neil Lennon is set to seal his first deal of the January transfer window.
Dundee keeper Scott Bain is expected to join the Hibees on an initial loan deal after the window opens tonight.
Bain, 26, is then expected to sign a permanent deal in the summer.
Hibs assistant Garry Parker has confirmed the deal is close,speaking yesterday, he said:
"He has been in talks so hopefully (he will sign) because we have only one fit goalkeeper just now.
"So it will be competition for Ofir Marciano and that's good.
"That's what you need at this level. Ofir will need to be on his toes."
