He had loan spells with Edinburgh City, Livingston, Forfar and Dunfermline during his time at the Capital club, which was marred by a lengthy spell on the sidelines with a back injury.

According to The Sun, the Stark's Park outfit are keen on Allan as a potential replacement for recently departed striker Kevin Nisbet, although a number of other clubs - including Scottish Championship teams - are understood to be monitoring the Melrose-born player's situation.

Allan will join former Celtic youngster Regan Hendry at the Kirkcaldy club if he agrees terms with the third-tier side. Hibs winger and Allan's former colleague in the Hibees' development squad Jamie Gullan spent the second half of last season on loan at Stark's Park.
