Duffy wants permanent Hibernian deal

Darryl Duffy is keen to earn a permanent switch to Hibernian once he returns to action from a broken foot.

The Glasgow-born striker is currently on-loan from League One outfit Bristol Rovers but has yet to make his debut after suffering the injury just days after joining the SPL club.

The 26-year-old admits he is enjoying life back in Scotland after spending just under five years plying his trade south of the border.

He told skysports.com: "I'm really enjoying being back in Scotland as I already knew a few of the players here before I joined, which obviously helps you settle in.

"It has been a frustrating time because when you join a new club, you don't want to be spending your time stuck in the gym and having to watch from the sidelines on a Saturday afternoon.

"We have a great bunch of lads here and that has made a big difference to me whilst I've been out.

"At the moment, I'm looking to get back fit again and getting a chance to play for this great club.

"I will be out of contract at Bristol Rovers at the end of the season and I don't see any reason why I can't move up here again on a permanent basis.

"There is a lot of football left to be played until then and it is up to me to get back into the side once I am fully fit and impress people.

"It is a big season for myself and that was another reason why it was so frustrating to pick up the injury when I did.

"If I can score a few goals and do well this season then hopefully I will get a few offers come my way in the summer."
