Has Brandon Barker hinted at a possible Hibs return this summer?
The Manchester City winger spent last season on loan at Easter Road in an attempt to gain some valuable first team experience.
And that’s exactly what he got, appearing 30 times for Neil Lennon’s men and delighting fans with some of his swashbuckling performances.
So far this summer, Barker’s future away from City has not been sorted – leaving a little hope for Hibs fans that he might return.
Now his latest Instagram Story post may get those same supporters very excited about a possible return:
Barker would no doubt have been aware that Hibs resigned Jamie Maclaren yesterday following his successful loan spell at Easter Road, while Florian Kamberi returned to the club earlier this summer after having a similarly brilliant loan last term.
Could he be the next one to return to Easter Road? Lennon is definitely on the lookout for reinforcements and Barker would be a very popular signing if they could make it happen.
