Ten defenders Hibs could target on free transfers this summer - including former Aberdeen and Motherwell stars

There are some intriguing options available for Hibs as they look to boost their defensive ranks.

It has been an underwhelming season for Hibs and one that has seen Nicky Montgomery’s side failed to secure a top six finish.

Saturday’s 2-1 away defeat against lowly Ross County provided yet another disappointing day - but one Hibs will hope to put behind them as the head into the final three games of the season. That begins with a home double header against Aberdeen and Motherwell before the campaign comes to a close with a visit to Livingston in two weeks time.

Once that game is over and the curtain comes down on a season of change, Montgomery will aim to boost his squad during the summer months as he focuses on preparations for his first full season in charge at Easter Road.

With defensive issues hampering Hibs bid to improve this season, there is no doubt Montgomery will aim to boost his options at the back - and that could mean looking into the free transfer options where several potential additions could catch the eye.
