No Hibs deal for Jermaine Pennant

Hibs boss Neil Lennon has today revealed that he won't be offering Jermaine Pennant a deal at Easter Road.

Former Liverpool winger Pennant, 34, has been on trial with the Hibees over the last few weeks, and played in pre-season friendlies against Dunfermline, Berwick & Sunderland, but has failed to land a contract.

However, Lennon didn't blow the idea completely out the water.

Speaking after today's Betfred Cup win over Montrose, he said:

“There’s nothing for Jermaine Pennant at the minute but we might review it later on.

“We were pleased with what he brought but we have prioritised other positions.”
