HIBS today announced they have signed 21-year-old winger Abdellah Zoubir on loan from French Ligue 2 club FC Istres. The Lille-born youngster has agreed a season-long loan deal at Easter Road after impressing Easter Road boss Pat Fenlon during a week’s trial with the Capital ouitfit.

Although terms have been agreed and documents signed, Zoubir will only become a registered player for the club once the necessary paperwork has been accepted by the authorities and an international transfer certificate issued by the French Football Federation.
