Former Hibernian winger Ivan Sproule is keen on a return to the club after being told he has no future at Bristol City. The 29-year-old is currently on loan at League One Yeovil, having been told his contract, which expires in summer, will not be renewed.
And he says a second spell in Edinburgh, where he helped Hibs win the CIS Insurance Cup in 2007, appeals.
He said: "I knew if I was going to leave Bristol City this was always going to come up," he told the Edinburgh Evening News.
"Everyone knows Hibs are a club that will always be close to my heart.
"They gave me a chance in football, made my career. I've very fond memories of my time in Edinburgh. Everyone at the club made us welcome, I always gave 100 per cent when I played and I was lucky enough to be in a team which won something.
"I've never hidden my love for the club or the fact I am a Hibs supporter. You never know where you are going to end up in football but I will always be grateful to Hibs.
"It wouldn't rule out moving back to Easter Road but that's in the hands of others, not mine. I still feel I have a lot to offer but for the moment I'm simply concentrating on getting myself as fit as I can for January."
