James McPake: Has impressed at Hibs

Hibs have admitted they want Coventry defender James McPake to turn his loan spell at Easter Road into a permanent switch.

The 27-year-old has become a fans' favourite for the Edinburgh club as they battled their way to Scottish Premier League survival, during which time he captained the side.

And Hibs boss Pat Fenlon said: "Since he's come in, he's been different class. He's what we need in the club; we'd love to keep him but he's a Coventry player and we need to try and sort that out first."

Hibs legend Pat Stanton echoed the calls for the club to push for a permanent deal, adding: "McPake's impressed me. Against Kilmarnock, there was a moment that told me a lot about him.

"The ball had gone out for a throw or a corner kick and Hibs were a goal down. The only person who ran to retrieve the ball was McPake. Now that might not be seen as important to people, but to me it's important.

"It told me he was up for it, determined to get Hibs back in the game. I liked that. I hope we push the boat out a bit to get McPake to stay."
