Hull City forward James Scott is having a medical with Scottish Premiership club Hibs as he closes in on a move back to Scotland (DR).

The Scottish youth international is nearing a loan move at Easter Road. Scott has fallen down the pecking order at Hull City and will leave the English Championship club for experience on a season-long loan.

Hibs head coach Jack Ross was already looking for attacking reinforcements prior to striker Christian Doidge’s Achilles injury. The Welshman’s injury has made the attacking area a priority for recruitment.

Work continues on bringing Orlando City attacker Chris Mueller to Hibs six month early. He has already signed a pre-contract and is due to move to Edinburgh in the New Year after the MLS season.

Scott signed for Hull City in 2020 in a seven-figure switch from Motherwell. His move back to the Premiership could be wrapped up in time for Hibs’ trip to Dundee this weekend.
