Hibs boss Neil Lennon has confirmed that the club are close to signing Manchester City winger Thomas Agyepong on a season-long loan deal.
The 21-year-old Ghana internationalist has been on loan at Dutch clubs NAC Breda and FC Twente and is set to follow in the footsteps of City team-mate Brandon Barker, who spent last season at Easter Road on a temporary arrangement.
Lennon, who admitted talks aimed at bringing back SV Darmstadt 98 striker Jamie Maclaren are ongoing, said: “We are just waiting on the paperwork as Thomas has had his medical.
“He’ll be with us on a year’s loan. He’s very similar to Brandon, good with both feet, quick, good end product.
“He’s 21-years old, so he fits the profile.”
