Moroccan duo Merouane Zemmama and Abdessalam Benjelloun have been handed the chance to secure a future with Hibernian under new boss John Hughes. The pair both ended last season out on loan, but Hughes is keen to give both men the opportunity to display their undoubted ability. He told The Scotsman: "Zemmama is looking absolutely great. His visa problems have all been sorted out and I've been really impressed with what I've seen on the pitch. "He's been in three days now and he's still got a bit to go, but it's obvious he's a really talented player with a good engine on him. "Benji had a wee hiccup with his passport but hopefully he'll be back with us in the next few days."
