According to reports in this morning's tabloids, Hibs have failed in a loan move for Derby County forward Chris Maguire.

The 22-year-old has fallen out-of-favour at Pryde Park following his £400,000 move from Aberdeen last summer.

Hibs boss Pat Fenlon was keen to hand the Scotland international a loan move to get playing football again, but it's thought Derby have knocked back the Hibees bid.

Maguire started his career with the Dons, and was never a prolific goalscorer until his last season at Pittodrie.

He also had a spell on loan at Kilmarnock.
