Coventry's McPake on verge of making Hibernian move
The 27-year old is in discussions with the Edinburgh outfit, with whom he spent six months on loan during the second half of last season, and a permanent deal is likely to be agreed.
"We've had talks with Hibs about James. It's still up in the air at the moment but they made him captain so I am sure they will sort something out," said Coventry director Steve Waggott.
The Sky Blues were relegated from the Championship to League One last season and it appears almost certain that McPake will depart the Ricoh Arena for Easter Road.
