McCann: Resigned to leaving Hibs when his contract expires in the summer
Hibernian full-back Kevin McCann expects to leave Easter Road in the summer when his contract expires.
McCann has not made a first-team appearance since November after picking up a knee injury during a loan spell at SPL rivals Inverness Caledonian Thistle.
Though the 23-year-old is fit again, he has been overlooked by Hibs boss Colin Calderwood and has not been contacted regarding the possibility of a new deal.
With plenty of competition at right-back in the Hibs squad, McCann is now focusing on ensuring other clubs are aware he is fit and available.
"I'm fit now and training hard so I'll just have to wait and see what happens this summer," said McCann in the Daily Record.
"I'm out of contract at the end of the season and I'm just keeping myself fit to try to get a contract somewhere. I've not spoken to anyone at Hibs but I haven't had any chances and I really need to start playing football again.
"I wanted to try to finish this season on a real high but I've not been given the opportunity to do that.
"I've not heard from anyone at Easter Road but I have to look after myself, so I've been speaking to my agent to see what opportunities are there for me.
"People keep asking me if I'm fit and I don't want other clubs to think I'm not fit when I am."
