Striker Daniel MacKay is set to leave Inverness Caledonian Thistle as the club have confirmed they have accepted an offer from Hibernian.
The 20-year-old is set to move to Leith with the deal to be confirmed in the next 24 hours, subject to a medical assessment.
Club chief executive Scot Gardiner confirmed Inverness accepted the offer partly due to the impact of the pandemic.
“As disappointed as we are to lose Daniel, the continuing financial pressures caused by the pandemic meant that we took the only pragmatic decision we could, while negotiating the best possible package for the club.
"Daniel goes with our best wishes for his career going forward."
MacKay made 57 appearances for the club, scoring 12 goals.
He also holds the record for being the club’s youngster goal scorer at 16 years 171 days with his goal against Peterhead on his debut in October 2017.
