Neil Lennon agrees to become Hibernian manager - report

Neil Lennon has agreed a deal to be the new manager of Scottish Championship side Hibernian, the BBC is reporting.

Former Celtic and Bolton boss Lennon was favourite to take over at Easter Road after Alan Stubbs left to join Rotherham United.

Lurgan-born Lennon was keen to return to management after leaving Bolton Wanderers in March and he has also been in talks with Belgian giants Anderlecht.

He also hinted at a possible return to Parkhead following the departure of Ronny Deila

On Wednesday, the BBC reported that Lennon has agreed a deal and should sign it later in the day.

The former Northern Ireland captain is believed to want Garry Parker as his assistant. The pair played together at Leicester and worked in the coaching side at Celtic and Bolton.

During his last spell in Scotland, Lennon spent seven years at Celtic, four as a manager lifting three league titles and two Scottish Cups.
