Hibs set to sign Paul McGinn

Last updated : 30 January 2020 By Steve Forbes

Hibs are tonight on the vergre of signing St Mirren defender Paul McGinn.

The Hibees have apprently agreed a fee with the Paisley club for the 29-year-old and the transfer should be completed soon.

St Mirren had told Hibs he wasn't leaving until they got a replacement, which they went out and completed, with the signing of Lee Hodson on loan from Gillingham.

McGinn is now likely to follow in his brothers footsteps and sign on at Easter Road.

Editor' View:

Should this be completed it gives another option in the right back area, following the long term injury to Jason Naismith, who had been excellent this season, following his loan from Peterborough.

The Hibees have plenty options in that area, but David Gray has been struggling with injury, Tom James has struggled to hold down a first team spot, and Steven Whittaker has been deployed in midfield.
