James McPake is expected to join Hibernian Football Club on a permanent basis.
The defender impressed during a loan spell at Easter Road last season, making a total of 15 appearances in all competitions and chipping in with one goal.
Coventry City are willing to let McPake leave on a permanent basis following their relegation to League One, and Hibs are set to land the 27-year-old.
“We've had talks with Hibs about James. It's still up in the air at the moment but they made him captain so I am sure they will sort something out,” Sky Blues director Steve Waggott said.
