Hibs are set to play their opening Betfred Cup group stage match four days later, the draw for which will be made in the coming weeks.

With 12 first-team players leaving Hibs this week – either at the end of their contracts or loan deals expiring – Heckingbottom’s summer recruitment plans are well under way and he is aiming to have the majority of his new recruits in place by the start of pre-season training.
