Hughes tries to corner Horner ahead of Hamilton opener

John Hughes, manager of Inverness Caledonian Thistle, hopes to sign former Hibernian midfielder Lewis Horner before Saturday's SPFL Premiership opener with Hamilton Academical.

The 22-year-old, who was at Easter Road during Hughes' time in the Hibs dug-out, has impressed on trial with Inverness after spending most of last season with English non-league s ide Blyth Spartans.

Hughes said: "Lewis is someone who can play right-back, like he did on Saturday against Birmingham, in midfield or even as a second striker. He is very versatile.

"He's someone that is not going to break the bank. I would like to think that we can do a deal, hopefully this week."
