Hibernian boss Paul Heckingbottom has revealed that he has not given up on signing players this summer. He hopes to make more additions to his squad.
This is despite the Easter Road club already making six signings this summer.
“We are still weak in certain positions”
“We are still weak in certain positions, so we want to get players in sooner rather than later” he said, as reported by the Evening News.
“Will it go up to the end of the window? I would be disappointed if it took that long” he concluded.
One player that the Hibs boss would no doubt love to have return to Easter Road is Marc McNulty. The Reading striker was a huge success in his loan spell in the second half of the season.
Former Hibs striker available?
Interestingly enough, it was recently reported by Get Reading that McNulty is one of seven Reading players not involved in first-team training, and told to find new clubs.
If Hibs could afford to bring McNulty back to Easter Road they would jump at the chance. However, he may be too expensive to be signed on a permanent basis.
It is also unlikely that Reading would agree to another loan deal. Therefore, it remains to be seen if McNulty will return to Hibs.
Judging by Heckingbottom’s comments though, more signings will be made this summer, which will please the Hibs support.
