EXTENDED LOAN DEAL: Ryan McGivern

Northern Ireland defender Ryan McGivern is set to remain at Scottish Premier League club Hibernian to the end of the season.

McGivern - currently on-loan from Manchester City - has impressed since arriving at Hibs last August.

The 23-year-old has made 14 appearances this season to help Pat Fenlon’s side climb the SPL table - currently they sit fourth.

McGivern joins Wolves loanee Leigh Griffiths in agreeing new terms to remain at Easter Road for the remainder of the season.

Manager Fenlon told Hibernian’s official website: “We are delighted to be able to keep both players until the end of the season.

“Both Leigh and Ryan have made massive contributions to the team and have been good for us.

“We’ve already said that we would do everything we could to keep them at Hibernian and fortunately all that hard work has come to fruition.

“This news gives everybody connected to the club a boost as we return after the winter break for Saturday’s home game against Dundee.”
