Hibs have confirmed the departures of six players when their contracts expire at the end of the month.

As expected Scott Allan and Drey Wright will be leaving the club while midfielder Alex Gogic, defender Sean Mackie, winger Jamie Murphy, and midfielder Innes Murray will all depart as well.

Gogic spent the second half of last season on loan at St Mirren and has an offer on the table while Mackie joined Raith Rovers on a similar arrangement.

Murray played a key role for Edinburgh City as the Citizens earned promotion to League One via the play-offs, scoring eight goals and registering seven assists including a strike in each leg of the final against Annan Athletic.

The Capital club has also ‘placed on record its gratitude’ to loan trio Rocky Bushiri, Sylvester Jasper, and James Scott who arrived from Norwich City, Fulham, and Hull City respectively.

The Evening News revealed last week that Hibs have already indicated they will not be taking up an option to make Jasper’s move permanent, while Scott has been linked with Accrington Stanley, Derby, Portsmouth, Sunderland and a return to Easter Road, with Hull boss Shota Arveladze set to run the rule over the 21-year-old before making a call on his future.
