Bristol Rover striker Duffy agrees Hibernian deal

Hibernian have come to an arrangement for Bristol Rovers former Scotland Under-21 international striker Darryl Duffy to join on loan until the end of the season. The player will start training with the Leith club immediately while registration and international clearance is confirmed.

The 26 year old told Hibs' official website: "I am delighted to be joining Hibernian and can't wait to start training with the boys first thing this morning.

"I obviously know just how big a club Hibernian is, and have been really impressed with the training centre and the completed stadium.

"I know the gaffer well, and the style he wants to play.

"I'm just very excited to be back in Scotland and am looking forward to playing in the SPL again."

Boss John Hughes, who is bracing himself to lose Anthony Stokes to Celtic, said: "I know Darryl very well and he's everything you want at your football club.

"He is experienced, but I also think he's still got his best years ahead of him, and will give us more options up front.

"He loves getting in behind defenders and has scored goals wherever he has played.

"He's a great addition to the squad and I'm delighted he'll be here at Hibernian helping us push on this season."
