Will Fish has apologised to Hibs fans for the way their season turned out - and at the same time appeared to confirm he won't be back.

The centre-back has just finished his second campaign playing on loan from Manchester United after extending his initial one-season deal last summer. Unlikely to have a long-term future at Old Trafford, there was always the chance he could return to Easter Road another time but he has appeared to rule that out.

The Hibees recently sacked manager Nick Montgomery, their second fired boss this campaign, after missing out on the top six and finishing eighth. A full club review has taken place and with billionaire Bill Foley in place as a minority shareholder, significant investment is expected this summer.

Fish is unlikely to be around to be part of it though as he thanked the capital club for giving him an opportunity and promising fans there are better times around the corner.

He wrote on social media: "I can only apologise this season wasn’t good enough for a club like this. I promise I’ve absolutely loved playing for Hibs & had some incredible memories along the way. Good luck for the future .. better times are coming! THANK YOU again."

There has been reported interest in the defender from the English Championship with Cardiff City named as one of the club's taking a look. He broke into the Hibees team midway through his first season and impressed for the rest of the campaign, but the consistency hasn't been there as much this campaign.
