Allan Delferrière has agreed a new long-term contract at Hibernian.

The Easter Road club has this morning announced that the midfielder has signed a three-year extension.

He arrived from Standard Liege in early 2022, initially joining up with the Edinburgh club's development squad before making the step up to first-team level.

Delferrière spent time out on loan with Edinburgh City last season to gain some vital minutes under his belt and has now become a regular in the set-up at Hibs.

He made his debut under David Gray in May 2022 against St Johnstone. 

The Belgian, 21, has made eight first-team appearances in total, with six of those coming this term.

Head coach Nick Montgomery said: “I have only had the pleasure of working with Allan for two weeks, but I see a young player with huge potential.

“He has many attributes to become a top midfielder and has a real desire to improve. He will be a great asset for the Club moving forward, and as coaching staff we are happy Allan has decided to extend his contract.”

Meanwhile, Hearts will play Rangers in the semi-final of the Viaplay Cup with Hibs taking on Aberdeen.

Hearts against Rangers was first out of the hat in tonight's draw with Hibs and Aberdeen completing the final four.

The semi-final fixtures will be played on November 4/5.

Hibs joined their Edinburgh rivals in the final four with a 4-2 win over St Mirren.

Scott Tanser had fired St Mirren into a 1-0 lead before the break, however, Nick Montgomery's side rallied to take victory in the second half.

Elie Youan and Dylan Vente inspired a quick turnaround after the break before the Buddies levelled through Keanu Baccus.

But Hibs would go on to win with a Martin Boyle double seeing the capital club into the semi-final of the competition.
