Hibernians are expected to sign Guinea goalkeeper Ibrahim Kone, the Times of Malta can confirm.
The Paolites were forced to return to the transfer market to bring in a new goalkeeper after Matthew Calleja Cremona suffered a serious knee injury that is set to rule him out for several months.
With Nicky Vella the only established goalkeeper at the club, the Paolites are looking to bring another quality goalkeeper at the club and have targeted Guinea international Kone.
The 31-year-old goalkeeper has been training with the Paolites for the past three days now and it looks like that coach Stefano Sanderra is set to offer a contract to Kone.
Kone arrived in Maltese football last season when he joined Żejtun Corinthians.
Last season, he made four appearances with the Corinthians.
Prior to his arrival to Malta, Kone spent the majority of his career in France where he played for US Boulogne Tarbes Pyrenees, pau FC and Stade Bordelais.
