Leigh Griffiths: Wolves striker has returned to Hibernian on loan for the first half of the season
Hibernian have agreed a deal to bring Wolves striker Leigh Griffiths back to Easter Road on loan at least until January 2013.
Griffiths spent last season on loan with the SPL club and scored 11 goals in 36 appearances for Hibs in all competitions.
The 21-year-old netted in the Scottish Cup semi-final against Aberdeen, which booked a Hampden Park date with city rivals Hearts and he was a big hit with Hibs.
He will now join up with the rest of the Hibs squad at their pre-season base in Holland later on Saturday and he will become manager Pat Fenlon's fifth summer signing.
Griffiths initially joined Wolves in January 2011 from Dundee, but he has made just one substitute appearance in the Carling Cup during his time at Molineux.
