Tottenham goalkeeper Tom Glover has been released by the North-London club. Having been on trial at Hibs in January, should the Hibees look to snap him up on a free?

The Australian has been part of Mauricio Pochettino’s matchday squads on occasion, serving as back-up to either Hugo Lloris or Michel Vorm. He never got any further than that though and is now looking for a new club.

Back in January, Glover joined up with the Hibees on their warm weather training camp in Dubai. A move eventually never happened.

Should Paul Heckingbottom move in for the former trialist?

Glover should only serve as back-up

One thing is for sure and that is he’s not fit to be a first choice right now. He’s hardly played any football at a senior level, featuring just six times for Central Coast Mariners during the 2017/18 campaign.

With Ofir Marciano in goals, Hibs have one of the best goalkeepers in the SPFL. Glover’s arrival would only be to cover the loss of Adam Bogdan, who recently returned to Liverpool after his Leith loan spell.

He’s just 21 though, which is no age for a goalkeeper. At six feet and three inches tall, Glover is a towering figure in the box with pretty decent handling. He impressed at youth level but little is known about his ability at senior level.

If Hibs are still wanting to sign him, it should be a short-term deal with no guarantees of first-team football. I’m not even fully convinced they need him, as there will be better back-up stoppers out there, plus promising keeper Maciej Dabrowski is still at the club.

It wouldn’t be a terrible signing for Hibs, but if he were to join, Glover should only serve as a deputy to Marciano. Does Heckingbottom really need him though? Probably not.
