Hyndman set for longer Scottish stay
Hibernian are reportedly ready to extend the loan deal of Bournemouth midfielder Emerson Hyndman until the end of the season.
After struggling to make an impact on the first-team in pre-season, United States international Hyndman was shipped out to Scottish outfit Hibs for the first half of the 2018/19 campaign.
The 22-year-old has made nine Premiership appearances so far, scoring one goal in the process, and his impressive performances have helped the club climb to eighth in the league on 18 points.
With the midfielder's loan due to expire in January, it is now being claimed manager Neil Lennon is eager to keep hold of the American at Easter Road for the entirety of the season.
Reports are suggesting Hibs will make contact with the Cherries towards the back end of December to discuss the possibility of adding another six months onto Hyndman's temporary deal.
