McGeouch, a 21-year-old Scotland Under-21 international, previously enjoyed a loan spell at Coventry City last season while Sinclair, 19, is a graduate of the Saints successful youth academy.

After completing his move to the Scottish Championship side, McGeouch said: “I’m really excited.

“Hibs are a massive club and as soon as I became aware of the interest I wanted to move to Easter Road.

“My aim is to play as many first team games as possible and help to get the club back where it belongs; in the top division.”

Sinclair, younger brother of Manchester City winger Scott, said: “I’m really impressed by everything at the club and it’s great to be here – now I can’t wait to get started.

“My under-21s coach at Southampton told me about the possibility about moving to Hibs on loan on Friday and, as soon as I heard about it, I jumped at the chance.”

Meanwhile Hibs boss Alan Stubbs said: “They will offer us something different and strengthen our attacking options.

“Dylan comes to us with a high reputation earned at Celtic and we see him playing in a more central role in midfield.

“Jake will give us a few options in attack; through the middle and out wide. He is a really exciting player with genuine pace, who can hurt the opposition.”

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
