Paddy McCourt is training with Hibernian as he looks to secure a new club.

Leroy McCourt, the player's brother and agent, said the winger is looking to make a move to America later in the year and Hibs could be a short-term solution.

He told the BBC: "It's really just to keep his fitness up.

"He knows the manager from their short time together at Derry.

"He's just been in today to have a look around and do a bit of training.

"It's always been the intention to go to America.

"It's 99% nailed on that he'll go over there.

"He doesn't want to uproot his family at this stage of the season over there."

McCourt is a free agent after leaving Celtic.

The Major League Soccer season ends in October and it is thought he will be looking to earn a move for the next campaign.
