The goalkeeper, who played for Hibs as a trialist during Sunday's friendly against Dundee United, is excited by the challenge that awaits him in the Scottish capital.

Oxley told the club's official website: "I'm really pleased to sign on loan with Hibs - it's a big club with a positive atmosphere around the place and I'm excited about the future.

"As soon as I spoke to the manager, I quickly realised that Hibs are a club going in the right direction and I wanted to be a part of it.

"This is a great opportunity for me and I'm determined to seize my chance by helping Hibernian to win as many games as possible and to get the club back into the Scottish Premiership."

The 23-year-old, who has yet to start a game for Hull, made 43 appearances for League One Oldham Athletic during a loan spell last season. 

Hibs boss Alan Stubbs said: "We're delighted that we've managed to bring Mark to Hibernian - this loan deal has been in the pipeline for some time and it's great that we've managed to get it over the line.

"This move suits everybody - we were looking for a new first-choice goalkeeper and Mark was looking for a fresh challenge and an opportunity to play regular first-team football.

"Mark showed last season with Oldham that he is an excellent young goalkeeper and his move here provides him with the perfect platform to continue his development.

"Everybody was aware that filling this position was a priority and, after thoroughly scouring the transfer market, Mark was the stand-out choice and his arrival here is another positive step in the right direction."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
