Former Hibernian striker Keith Wright is confident that head coach Paul Heckingbottom won’t be leaving the Easter Road club in the summer.

Although he has admitted it would be a blow should the man in charge depart.

A recent report claimed that Hull City want Heckingbottom to replace Nigel Adkins. However, Wright believes that Heckingbottom will want to continue his good start to life in Edinburgh.

“Just getting started”

“It would be a massive blow if he were to go. He’s only just getting started.” Wright said, as reported by the Scottish Sun.


“Now he has the chance to build his own team and I think that’s something that really excites him, so I don’t think now is the time for him to be going anywhere.”

Heckingbottom has only been at Easter Road for a few months. But in that time he has already proved his worth.

Guided team to top six finish

He helped Hibs finish in the top six, and most importantly to fans, secured a finish above Edinburgh rivals Hearts in the league table.

Hibs have begun their transfer business for next season, so it would be a shock if Heckingbottom decided to up and leave the club before the start of the season.

Heckingbottom looks to be building something at Hibs. Only time will tell if he remains to finish the job he has begun.
