Hibs and Celtic have agreed a deal to send Anthony Stokes on loan to Easter Road until the end of the season – but the striker himself has yet to finalise terms.

The Hibees faced competition from Ladbrokes Premiership outfits Inverness Caledonian Thistle and Dundee United – plus a host of English clubs – to secure the services of the former Hibee, 27, but it now looks increasingly likely he’ll join up with Alan Stubbs’ side.

The Hibs head coach is hopeful a deal can be struck which will allow the player – who has fallen out of favour at Parkhead – to line up in Sunday’s Championship clash at Falkirk.
