11 Hibs players who could make transfer exits with Elie Youan bid considered and fringe men surplus to requirements

Another season of upheaval lies in store at Hibs.

David Gray looks set to be handed the manager's job on a full-time basis after his latest stint as a caretaker boss. He's said to be in the process of pulling together a backroom staff and once that's done the priority will be to try to mould a more equipped and better balanced squad.

It will be full steam ahead on that front after loanees Will Fish, Emiliano Marcondes and Myziane Maolida, all first-team regulars, went back to the their parent clubs. While the likes of David Marshall, Lewis Stevenson and Paul Hanlon left on free transfers after being contributors last season.

So quality for the first eleven is desperately needed, but first the Hibees will need to move on some deadwood. A number of fringe men who haven't made their mark will likely move on while there are some returning loanees unlikely to have a future either. There is also interest in at least one player who would be seen as a first-teamer.

Here, we look at 11 Hibs players who could leave this summer.

Jake Doyle-Hayes

Irishman's time at Easter Road has been up and down, partly due to injuries. Hasn't kicked a ball in the Premiership since the opening day thanks to his latest problem. Contracted until next year but Hibs surely wouldn't be hard to deal with.

Jair Tavares

The Portuguese winger is highly unlikely to have a future in Leith. Barely featured under Lee Johnson before the briefest renaissance after Nick Montgomery took over but faded away. Over the piece has shown that he's not really up to it.

Elie Youan

Hibs have a decision to make on the forward with a £2.5million offer on the table from a French side. Provided 10 goals and 10 assists last season but is also inconsistent and that money could prove too tough to turn down.

Martin Boyle

There has been reported interest from the A-League in a man whose influence has waned. Nevertheless the Hibees would possibly reluctant to move on him AND Youan given the lack of options in the squad.

Ewan Henderson

Henderson has been on loan at Belgium with Oostende and there was an option to buy included in it. Unfortunately, they've since gone bust and rendered that redundant, so the attacking midfielder will need to find another interested club.

Harry McKirdy

The striker completely underwhelmed after signing from Swindon and has just had a loan spell back there. Definitely wouldn't a surprise to see him go there, or another English League Two side, permanently.

Nohan Kenneh

One of Lee Johnson's first signings, there were high hopes for the former Leeds man. But the defensive midfielder has since been out at Ross County and Shrewsbury.

Max Boruc

Potentially still has a long-term future at Hibs but after playing on loan at Arbroath at the end of last season, another temporary switch could happen.

Riley Harbottle

The defender arrives from Nottingham Forest but made just two appearances in green, one in the Premiership and one in the League Cup. Shipped out on loan to Colchester in January where he played 12 times in League Two. Has a contract until 2026 but unlikely to see that out.

Dan Mackay

The winger's latest loan was with Livingston after spells at Kilmarnock and back at previous club Inverness. Wasn't a regular in the side that got relegated so not likely to stake a claim at the Hibees.

Allan Delferriere

In and out of the team during the first part of the season then loaned to Czech second tier side MFK Vyškov, who he couldn't help get promoted to the top flight.
