The former Celtic boss has been linked with the role ever since Alan Stubbs left Easter Road for Rotherham last month.
But it was always hard to believe that Lennon – who only left the Hoops two years ago – would be prepared to manage in the second-tier of Scottish football when making his return to management.
That looks like it will happen now as thescottishsun.co.uk report he’s agreed to take over in Leith.
As you’d expect with Lennon, his appointment at Hibs won’t go unnoticed and fans of the club have already been sharing their reaction.
While many supporters of other clubs question his drop down in division, the Hibees faithful are ecstatic to get the Northern Irishman and hope he can lead them back into the Premiership after failing to achieve promotion over the last two seasons.
Here’s the reaction on Twitter this morning:
Hibs fans – give us your reaction to the Lennon news?
