Hibs have today confirmed that on loan striker Marc McNulty has left the Hibees after his loan deal ended.
The 27-year-old sees his second loan spell at Easter Road come to a premature end, following the coronavirus outbreak.
McNulty scored 4 goals in 8 games since returning to Edinburgh, but will now return to parent club Reading.
The former Hibs youth prospect will now have to wait to see what his future has in store, as he is well out the reckoning at the English side.
McNulty was well liked at Easter Road, but he hadn't quite returned to full fitness before his season was cut short.
It remains to be seen if Hibs will make a move to bring him back for a third spell whenever a new season kicks off.
The Hibees tried to sign Dunfermline striker Kevin Nisbet during the January transfer window, having three bids knocked back on the final day, with the 3rd thought to be in excess of £400,000.
It could be a route the Hibees will go back down come the summer, if football is going to resume, however the Hibees finances will have been hit during the pandemic, and any interest might have cooled.
