The Irish midfielder was released by the Edinburgh club earlier this week and looks likely to move to England in order to secure a regular starting spot.

Speaking to the Daily Record, Deegan said: "I will be sad to leave Hibernian and it is a big wrench to know I won't be coming back to the club this summer.

"The manager and the players were fantastic to me but I have not been playing as regularly as I would have liked.

"Coming to the end of last season it wasn't really happening for me at Hibs. The writing was on the wall when the club made a couple of signings.

"I am not the kind of player who is happy to sit on the bench and make substitute appearances here and there so I am leaving to pursue regular first-team football."

The former Coventry City player has been linked with a number of clubs in League One.

couple of wins and everything is OK! Sorry you still haven't got a striker who can consistently goals. Keep searching. I don't think Liverpool will make top four not even Europa League this time around.

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
