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 have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
