Hibernian have called a 2.00pm news briefing for this afternoon when they will confirm Terry Butcher as their new manager.
Hibs moved swiftly to secure the services of the former England defender after being given permission to speak to him by his previous employers Inverness Caledonian Thistle.
And the deal was finalised when Hibs chairman Rod Petrie agreed a compensation package for Butcher, and his assistant Maurice Malpas, who will again team up with the former Sunderland and Motherwell boss at Easter Road.
Butcher, who joined Thistle in January 2009, leaves them second in the SPFL table and in their second successive League Cup semi-final, while Hibs, who lost 2-0 at home to Caley last weekend, are currently languishing in seventh.
Petrie made the 54-year-old his main target following the departure of previous manager Pat Fenlon on November 1.
You can check out Butcher's first game in charge of Hibernian against St Mirren live on Sky Sports 3 from 12.45pm on Saturday, November 23
