Hibs are bracing themselves for the news that striker Farid El Alagui will be sidelined until at least the new year.

The 29-year-old striker was stretchered off in the 2-1 defeat by Alloa on Saturday and the club fears that the French-Moroccan striker has ruptured his Achilles’ tendon.

The French-Moroccan has yet to have a scan on his injury, but if the prognosis turns out to be correct, then he will be out for an estimated five months.

Hibs are expected to bolster their attacking options today with the loan signing of Jake Sinclair from Southampton.
