HIBERNIAN are eyeing a transfer return for Martin Boyle, according to reports.

The speedy winger left Easter Road in January when he switched to Saudi Arabian club Al-Faisaly in a £3million deal.

Al-Faisaly were relegated from the Saudi Pro League and The Sun now say that Hibs are plotting a return.

Boyle watched on during the Edinburgh outfit's Premier Sports Cup clash against Morton.

The report also states that Boyle has watched Aberdeen in action in the League Cup and Jim Goodwin's side could hijack a possible deal.

Boyle played 187 league games for Hibs and scored 47 goals along the way during his seven-year stint.

He has also now become a key member of the Australian national team at international level.
