Turkish side Yeni Malatyaspor have completed a loan deal for Hibs midfielder Stevie Mallan, with an option to make it a permanent move in the summer.

The talented playmaker wasn’t in the matchday squad for Hibs against Dundee United on Saturday as rumours over his future persisted. A move to Turkey was thought to be dead a couple of weeks ago while a loan move to former employer St Mirren was also ruled out.

But things have picked up again, with a deal agreed in principle on Sunday for the midfielder as he jetted out to Turkey to complete the move. It’s a loan deal for the rest of this term but Mallan will pen a big-money contract in the summer. Jack Ross confirmed the deal this afternoon and it has now been approved by all parties.

Mallan has featured 95 times with 20 goals overall for the Hibees.
