Daryl Horgan has hit the ground running at Wycombe Wanderers following his move from Hibs.

The Irish international made the switch to the newly-promoted English Championship side last week for an undisclosed fee after spending the past two years at Easter Road.

He had featured in every game for Jack Ross’ side this season up until the most recent 1-0 defeat to Aberdeen, where his absence was due to the impending transfer following the arrival of Jamie Murphy on loan from Rangers.

Horgan’s last goal for Hibs came in a pre-season friendly draw with the Dons on July 25, with his last competitive strike coming in a 3-1 win over Motherwell last November in Ross’s first game in charge.

His most memorable moment in a Hibs jersey came in April 2019 when he struck a memorable double in an Edinburgh derby win over Hearts at Tynecastle.

The 28-year-old quickly endeared himself to Wycombe fans as he broke his duck in his first game for his new club at the weekend, scoring in the Carabao Cup match against Brentford on Saturday just days after making his Easter Road exit.

The winger made an instant impression, coming off the bench to net the equaliser as Gareth Ainsworth’s 10 men earned a 1-1 draw after 90 minutes, before losing 4-2 on penalties.
