Hibs have tonight announced that they have agreed terms to sign Inverness Caledonian Thistle winger Daniel Mackay.
The Hibees have agreed a transfer fee with Caley and terms with the 20-year-old, and the transfer will go ahead subject to a medical over the coming days.
Speaking to the official website, Hibs Sporting Director Graeme Mathie said:
“We are delighted to have agreed a fee with Inverness for Daniel.
“He fits the profile of the type of players we want to continue to bring to the club.
“In all the conversations we have had with Daniel, his family and his representatives, it was clear that they all see Hibernian as the right place to continue to develop his career.
“We want to be known as the best club in Scotland for developing talent and it’s great credit to Jack and the staff that young players can see a number of examples of players improving under their guidance.
“We have no doubt Daniel can be another who develops throughout his time here.
“I’d also like to thank Scot Gardiner of Inverness and Allan Preston of IMC Stellar who have both been excellent to deal with in negotiations.”
An exciting young player heading to Easter Road can only be seen as a good thing.
MacKay has done well for Caley this season and scored 9 goals that has attracted the interest of the Hibees.
It's good to see the club move quickly and tie-up a player for next season.
