Hibs: Ofir Marciano and Liam Henderson wanted by Neil Lennon

Hibernian manager Neil Lennon has confirmed that he is hoping to sign Israel goalkeeper Ofir Marciano and Celtic midfielder Liam Henderson.

The Scottish Championship club are in talks with 26-year-old Marciano, who was recently with Royal Mouscron in the Belgian Pro League.

Henderson spent last season on loan with Hibs from the Scottish champions.

Lennon says an approach has been made for the 20-year-old and he is waiting for a response.

The Scotland Under-21 midfielder made 48 appearances for the Edinburgh side having had previous loan spells with Hearts and Rosenborg.

Following the release of Conrad Logan, Mark Oxley and Sean Brennan, Hibs have signed Ross Laidlaw from Raith Rovers this summer, but Lennon is still looking for another goalkeeper.

Marciano, who has 10 international caps, started his career with hometown club Ashdod but left the Israeli Premier League outfit to join Mouscron last summer.

However, he only made six appearances for the Belgian side.

Lennon is hoping a deal can be concluded soon so that the 6ft 4in goalkeeper can be available for the opening game of the Championship next Saturday against Falkirk.
