Hibs training centre

Matthew Kennedy has returned to Everton after completing his loan stay at Easter Road.

The 20-year-old made his debut for Hibs against Livingston in August and proceeded to record 16 appearances, scoring once against Dundee United in the League Cup.

Head Coach Alan Stubbs thanked Kennedy for his contribution and wished the young forward all the best for the future.

Stubbs told Hibs’ TV: “We would like to wish Matthew all the best for the rest of the season.

“He has been great throughout his time here at Hibernian and we would like to thank Everton for letting us take one of their promising young players on loan.”
