Sean Mackie has agreed a season-long loan move to Dundee.
It’s hoped the Hibernian Academy graduate will enjoy exposure to regular first-team football at Dens Park before returning to Easter Road in the summer to take the next step in his football development.
Sean will link up with former Hibees captain James McPake, who is now in charge of the Dark Blues.
A recent Scotland Under-21 call-up, the 20-year-old has featured four times for the first team so far this season.
Sean Mackie: “This is a great opportunity for me, and I have to thank both clubs for getting it through.
“Hibs see it as a chance for me to improve by hopefully getting regular minutes and I’m grateful to Dundee for showing faith in me.
“I’ve only heard good things about James McPake, who is obviously highly thought of at Hibs, and I want to do what I can to help the team push for promotion.”
We’ll be keeping an eye on Sean’s progress and everyone at Easter Road wishes him well for the duration of his loan.
