Hibs striker Akpo Sodje heads to Belgium on trial

Last updated : 18 January 2012 By Steve Forbes

Hibs striker Akpo Sodje has been given permission to head to an unknown Belgian side on trial, after being told he has no future at Easter Road.

The 32-year-old signed for the Hibees last January from Charlton Athletic, and started his career at Easter Road on fire.

He scored 7 goals in 16 games, that helped the Hibees out of trouble last season.

Sodje started this season out-of-favour, behind Garry O'Connor and Leigh Griffiths and has failed to hold down a regular place in the side.

Hibs boss Pat Felon has apparently told the former Sheffield Wednesday player he can leave the club, and has allowed him to try and win a deal elsewhere.

Fenlon has already released Junior Agogo, Matt Thornhill, Victor Palsson, and David Carwford, and it looks like Sodje is the next name on his hitlist.
