Hibs manager Jack Ross has provided an update on Hibs’ French trialist Reginald Mbu Alidor.

The midfielder has been on trial at Easter Road over the past week. His last club was Estonian side Nomme Kalju but his contract there is set to expire at the end of next month.

A defensive midfielder, Ross was questioned over whether that position was somewhere he wanted to strengthen. Whilst not a natural CDM, Melker Hallberg has filled in admirably.

It won’t be Alidor who comes in though but Ross says that the depth in CDM quality is something he may look at.

“Not as things stand,” Ross said after the 3-0 win over Aberdeen. “I think it was something that was arranged prior to me coming as well. I was happy to honour that in terms of him coming in. It’s maybe not the exact what we are looking for at the moment.

“I said earlier, I’ve got a good group here. I’m not in a desperate rush to do a huge amount to it. We’ve got a decent number in the squad as well.

“Nothing moving forward with that. It’s just the depth within that position as well which we don’t really have any other of those types within the squad.”
