FORMER Motherwell full-back Paul Quinn is set to be given a route back into football by Championship side Hibernian.
The 29-year-old, who left Fir Park for Cardiff City in 2009, spent three years in South Wales before moving to Doncaster Rovers in 2012 and then agreeing a two-year deal with the Keepmoat Stadium club the following year until the summer of 2015.
However, he left at the beginning of this season by mutual consent and has been looking for a club ever since his departure from the South Yorkshire-based League One club.
Easter Road manager Alan Stubbs has invited Quinn in for training at the Edinburgh club’s East Mains training complex and talks over a deal started yesterday with a positive conclusion predicted before Saturday’s home game against Dumbarton.
Should Quinn sign on the dotted line, he will be seen as competition for Hibs’ vice-captain David Gray.
