Hibernian websites claim that Northern Ireland International defender Ryan McGivern is set to sign for the Valiants.
This feature contains rumour and speculation. All of these rumours should be treated as unconfirmed gossip until any move is officially announced by the club itself. We make no apologies for publishing some rumour and gossip (after all, even the state broadcaster, the BBC, publishes a daily Football Gossip column) but we’d just like to reiterate that this feature should not be treated too seriously.
McGivern endured a torrid season in the SPL and will look to move to Burslem to revive his career.
The 24 year-old can play either as a left-back or centre-half and will certainly boost Micky Adams paper thin squad.
According to reports from Hibs websites, the defender has already had a medical at Vale Park.
