13 free agents available to Hearts and Hibs including former Celtic and Newcastle stars

There are some intriguing options available to both Hibs and Hearts on a list of current free agents.

The summer transfer window slammed shut on Friday night as Hearts and Hibs were left to reflect on what had been a challenging summer in the transfer market. It was off-field matters that dominated the final days of the window for Hibs as they focused on their attempts to identify a successor to former manager Lee Johnson following his departure last month and there are hopes a new man will be in place when they return to action after the summer break.

Hearts allowed a number of players to depart on loan as goalkeeper Harry Stone joined Queen of the South and Connor Smith made a season-long move to English non-league club Scunthorpe United with a view to making a permanent switch at the end of the campaign. Any further cash or loan deals will have to wait until the January transfer window opens - but there are some intriguing options available for both clubs in the free agent market.
