Hibs transfers: Marijan Cabraja 'on way to Edinburgh' to replace departing Josh Doig at left-back

Hibs are closing in on the signing of Dinamo Zagreb left-back Marijan Cabraja as a replacement for Josh Doig, according to reports in Croatia.

Marijan Cabraja played in the Europa League for Ferencvaros last season.

The Easter Road outfit need to reinforce their options at left-back, with Doig on the brink of a £3million move to Hellas Verona, and Cabraja appears set to come in as the Scotland Under-21 internationalist’s replacement.

A 25-year-old, Cabraja joined Dinamo Zagreb from Gorica last year, but has struggled to break into the first team and has spent time on loan at Ferencvaros – where he played in the Europa League against Celtic – and Olimpia Ljubljana.

Croatian media outlet Germanijak claims that Cabraja has agreed a three-year deal with Hibs and is already en route to the Scottish capital to sign his contract. They also report that Hibs have not paid a fee, but that Dinamo Zagreb have negotiated a sizeable sell-on clause.

Hibs are said to have fought off competition from clubs in Poland for his signature.
