Asked by a supporter about his return to action on Twitter, Boyle has confirmed he should be back after the international break.

It’s a big boost for Hibs, especially after their initial statement on the Australian.
Boyle was supposedly sidelined ‘for the foreseeable future’
The wideman picked up a knee injury in December last year, which ended his 2018/19 season. After recovering from that, he made his return to action during the League Cup group stages.
In an away game to Elgin City, he suffered another injury, which the Hibees said would rule him out ‘for the foreseeable future.’
It’s promising for Paul Heckingbottom that he may have the winger back so quickly after this ominous statement. The Australian international can add searing pace to the right flank, whilst also providing valuable cover on the left.
It should really beef up competition for starts on the flanks. Glenn Middleton, Daryl Horgan and Joe Newell are the club’s natural wingers, whilst Scott Allan has also deputised on the right.
Boyle’s return to action doesn’t seem far away and that can only be good news for the Easter Road faithful.
