Hibs have today confirmed that they have signed French winger Abdellah Zoubir on loan.

The 21-year-old FC Istres player has signed a 12 month loan deal to become Pat Fenlon's 11th summer signing.

Zoubir is awaiting clearance from both Uefa and the French FA to be able to make his debut against Ross County at Easter Road tommorow, Hibs will announce this in due course.

The French-Moroccan can play on either wing, or through the middle as an attacking midfielder, the kind of player the Hibees have been crying out for.
