HIBS have reached an agreement with Al-Faisaly for the transfer for Martin Boyle.

The Australian international is set for a sensational return to Easter Road.

The 29-year-old winger departed the Edinburgh side in January as he swapped the Scottish Premiership for the mega riches for Saudi Arabia.

In recent weeks it's become clear that the attacker has been keen to return to Scotland.

Now, this morning, it has been confirmed that he return to Hibs is edging nearer.

A statement from Al Faisaly on Saturday morning confirmed a deal had been struck.

It reads: "The club's management has agreed to an offer from Scottish club Hibernian on the transfer of Australian first-team player Martin Boyle, wishing him more success."

Hibs followed that up with their own short statement. It said: "We can confirm that Hibernian have come to an agreement with Al-Faisaly for the transfer of Martin Boyle."
