Neil Lennon is trying to arrange the loan signing of former Dundee United winger Ryan Gauld from Sporting Lisbon.
Gauld, who joined Sporting in a £3m 6-year deal in 2014, is currently on loan at Portuguese second tier side Farense.
Hibs are hoping to conclude a deal before they head to Dubai tomorrow for a winter training camp
The highly rated midfielder made his Dundee United debut at the age of 16 but has found his first team opportunities limited.
Bristol City were reported to have shown an interest earlier this week however it is understood that he has a clause in his contract which allows him to move to a top flight team.
