Rumours of the move began after Eckersley’s former Hearts teammate James Keatings made the switch across Edinburgh.

There was even a report in a national paper today stating Hibs were one of a few Scottish clubs to have offered Eckersley a deal.

However, the player has since responded to a question on social media asking about the potential move by stating: “Wish Hibs well! But no I’m not going there”.

Eckersley signed for Hearts in August last year to provide depth at the left-back position. He would go on to play 27 times for the Gorgie Road club after first-choice left-back Kevin McHattie saw most of his season wiped out through injury.

Eckersley built up a good rapport with the fans who appreciated his energy and work rate.

He was told his one-year deal wouldn’t be getting renewed shortly after the club wrapped up the Scottish Championship title.
