Hibernian boss Paul Heckingbottom has made a bold claim about the Easter Road side’s transfer business with over six weeks of the transfer window remaining.
He has claimed that Hibs have all but finished their transfer business for the summer, and will not be signing any more players.
The Hibees have signed seven players so far this summer, but Heckingbottom claims that it is unlikely that any more players will arrive.
“That’s it, we’re done” he said, as reported by the Daily Record. He did however give fans a faint hope that another sign could arrive should circumstances dictate it.
“Unless circumstances change or something unforeseen happens which we’ve got to react to, that’ll be it.”
Perhaps that could mean another loan deal. If the likes of Marc McNulty or Stephane Omeonga were available, even on a temporary basis, you imagine that Hibs would make a move for the player.
Manager seems content with squad
For now though it looks like Heckingbottom is content with the squad he currently has.
Hibs fans will get their first chance to see the new signings in action at Easter Road when they take on Alloa in the Betfred Cup on Saturday.
Following the 1-1 draw with Stirling Albion in the first group game, Heckingbottom will be expecting better in the second game.
If Hibs turn in a good performance, Heckingbottom could well be justified in his comments.
