Skysports.com understands Liverpool youngster Victor Palsson is set to sign for Hibernian.
The 19-year-old from Iceland has been with the Reds for the past couple of seasons, spending time with their reserves and academy.
He was recently sent out on loan to Dagenham & Redbridge to gain further experience of first-team football.
Palsson is now expected to join Hibernian before the transfer window closes after scouts from the Scottish club checked on his progress.
Hibs are struggling in the SPL this season and Colin Calderwood may feel he needs to bring in a number of reinforcements before Monday's deadline.
