Hibs have revealed that 19-year-old striker Lewis Allan is recovering after an operation to remove a bone cyst on his spine.

Allan underwent surgery at Edinburgh’s Western General Hospital but specialists expect him to make a full recovery and be ready to eturn to training towards the end of February.

The youngster had been on loan to League One outfit Forfar Athletic, scoring once for the Station Park club but he developed the symptoms a few weeks ago and it became evident surgery would be necessary to remove the cyst from his thoracic spine (the upper and middle back).
