Hibs put Scott Allan saga behind them for now to sign John McGinn


Hibernian have reportedly agreed a fee to sign former St.Mirren midfielder John McGinn, subject to a medical.

The 20-year-old, who was a free agent after leaving St.Mirren at the end of last season, made 97 senior appearances for the Paisley side scoring four times.

With the Easter Road side agreeing a development fee with McGinn’s former side St.Mirren, the Scotland under-21 captain will make the move officially once a medical is complete.

McGinn has been out of action since St.Mirren captain Steven Thompson spiked the youngster in the thigh with a training pole after a prank went wrong. The youngster is currently taking action against the Paisley side.
