Manchester City loanee Thomas Agyepong has admitted that he would like another season at Hibs after an injury-hit spell north of the border.

Agyepong has only managed eight appearances for the Easter Road side after hamstring and thigh problems but knows it his future is out of his hands.

The 22-year-old winger has shown flashes of his ability in his limited minutes for the Cabbage and knows he has to use his time in training to impress manager Paul Heckingbottom.

“Would I like another year at Hibs? For me, yeah, but it all depends on City and the manager, they have control over that,” Agyepong told the Edinburgh Evening News.

“What I have control over is the weekend and in training and showing what I can bring to the team.”

The winger’s recent appearances from the bench against Celtic and Hearts were his first since a November’s 2-2 draw with Dundee at Easter Road.

He could feature again against Rangers tomorrow when the Hibees travel to face Steven Gerrard’s side at Ibrox as he continues his return to action.

Hibs and City appear to have built up a good rapport in recent seasons with a handful of players heading north on loan now and it would probably suit both sides for Agyepong to spend another season in Edinburgh.

The Ghanaian isn’t likely to break into Pep Guardiola’s first-team in the near-future so playing regularly for Hibs would be good for everyone.
