Hibernian boss Mixu Paatelainen has confirmed that Scotland Under-21 striker Ross Campbell has joined Dunfermline on loan.

The youngster has signed for an initial month at East End Park but Paatelainen denied it was the first step towards Campbell permanently leaving Easter Road.

He told The Scotsman, "I'm not trying to push him away from the club, I feel it will benefit him immensely to get some regular first-team football. Dunfermline are a good club and Ross will be in good hands with their manager Jim McIntyre also a striker."
