Loan deal for Hibs defender

Our first team pool has been strengthened with a 'deadline day' loan agreement for Hibernian defender Callum Booth.

Well known to both John Hughes and John Collins, left-back Callum (21) will join us for the remainder of the season, and will be available for selection for Sunday afternoon's game at Falkirk.

Capped at Under 19 and Under 21 for Scotland, Callum picked up first team experience through loan spells with Arbroath and Brechin City earlier in his career.

He also has 34 appearances at the top level for Hibs to his credit, but has been on the fringes at Easter Road during Pat Fenlon's tenure as manager.  His only outing this season so far was in Hibs' midweek cup exit against Queen of the South.
