He moved back to Molineux at the end of that spell only to be told he had no future with the English Championship club.

Griffiths is expected to play some part in tonight’s friendly against Juliper League side OH Leuven in Belgium tonight, the second match of Hibs mini European tour.

Meanwhile, former Hibs goalkeeper Mark Brown is on trial with Southend United after failing to agree a new deal with the Easter Road club and will feature in today’s game against Braintree as will American midfielder Anton Peterlin who was on trial at Hearts recently.
