Hibs left it late to add to their squad on transfer deadline day with Jason Naismith signing on a season-long loan.

The club also saw Sean Mackie depart on loan to Dundee. Much of Hibs' work was done earlier in the window with Paul Heckingbottom bringing in a total of ten players across the window. But what is his best starting XI? (Long-term injured players have not been included - David Gray and Martin Boyle)

Has had a couple of iffy moments in the last couple of games but has proven himself time and again to be a huge figure between the sticks.
If the new signing can play like he did at Ross County he is good enough to keep David Gray and Tom James out of the team.

The player fans want to see in the heart of the defence. Performed well before injury and Hibs have had their defensive issues without him.
Provides the right-left balance with Porteous. Hibs need to make more use of his ability to move upfield with the ball.
Of course it is.
Has had a decent enough start to his Hibs career. Energetic and can cover ground.
Brought in on a three-year deal from Vejle Boldklub in Denmark after three years with Udinese. Suggests hes not here to sit on the bench and fans will be hoping he can answer some of the questions posed in midfield.
With Martin Boyle injured the Irishman is the best option on the right. On his day he is a matchwinner.
Has shown time and again he is a class act as a No.10. Has a good relationship with Florian Kamberi on the field.
Has had a positive impact on the team with his control, pace and running ability, with and without the ball. Will provide the strikers with chances.
Starting to find the form he showed in his first six months or so at the club. Adept at spearheading the attack.
