Former Hibs youngster 'training with Dundee' after returning to Scotland
Former Hibs youngster Sam Stanton is reportedly training with Dundee after returning to Scotland following a spell in the United States.
It is not yet known whether the midfielder is gaining a favour from old Easter Road team-mate James McPake in order to stay fit or if he’s on trial looking to win a deal, as The Courier reports.
Stanton was previously with Dundee’s cross-street rivals Dundee United for two-and-a-half years, starting with a loan deal from Hibs before the transfer was made permanent in January 2018.
The 26-year-old left Tannadice in January of this year to move to Phoenix Rising in the USL Championship.
Stanton played 70 times for Hibs and was one of the few bright spots in the 2013/14 season as the Leith side were relegated from the top flight.
Playing behind the likes of Scott Allan, Dylan McGeouch and John McGinn, he struggled for regular opportunities thereafter and had loans at Dumbarton and Livingston before his move to United.
