Polish goalkeeper Maciej Dabrowski has become the latest player on trial with Hibs as boss Neil Lennon bids to strengthen his squad in the January transfer window.

And, although the Lech Poznan player is only 18, the Easter Road boss admitted Dabrowski has already caught his eye.

He said: “Maciej’s in on trial at the moment. He has impressed us. He looks a good goalkeeper and has bags of personality, as well. He’s not shy and we’ve liked what we’ve seen from him so far.”

Lennon may be casting his net far and wide but he’s also taken a player from closer to home on trial, highly-rated 19-year-old Cowdenbeath goalkeeper Jamie Sneddon.

The former Hearts kid, who worked with Hibs coach Alan Combe while he was at Tynecastle, is out of contract at the end of the month but Premiership sides St Johnstone and Partick Thistle have also been credited with an interest along with Livingston.

As the Evening News revealed earlier this week, Lennon is also assessing American winger Aaron Kavor and, again, the 23-year-old Seattle Sounders player is doing well at East Mains.

Lennon said: “He has done okay. He is going to be here for another week or so. It’s difficult to gauge over a couple of days, so we will give him a couple of weeks to see what he can do.

“He only flew in on Monday, so he probably still has a bit of jetlag at the moment. He has done well, but no decision has been made yet.

“We have liked what we’ve seen from him and he also has an Irish passport, which helps.”
