Collins was a key player for Swindon last season after making the move from Shrewsbury Town, having previously started his career with Aston Villa.

He has attracted a lot of interest this summer and it now understood that Hibs have moved into pole position for his signature after having a bid accepted.

It is thought that Hibs submitted a proposal worth around £200,000 for the 22-year-old forward.

Pat Fenlon's Hibernian finished seventh in the Scottish Premier League last season and will be looking to strengthen ahead of the new campaign.
