Hibs today confirmed that Estonian striker Henri Anier will be returning to relegation-threatened Dundee United.

The 25-year-old arrived at Easter Road on a season long deal on transfer deadline day at the end of August, but managed just three appearances as a substitute for Alan Stubbs’ side.

New United boss Mixu Paatelainen was keen to have the former Motherwell player return to help the Tannadice club’s fight for Premiership survival but, as the Evening News revealed, Hibs had the final say on his immediate future.

But with the arrival of new striker Chris Dagnall, the Capital club have now agreed to release Anier.
