Caltex Socceroos striker Jamie Maclaren is set for a loan move from his German club Darmstadt 98 to Hibernian in the Scottish Premiership, according to reports.
The former Hyundai A-League Golden Boot has reportedly agreed to a six-month loan deal with Neil Lennon's Hibs after struggling for regular game time in Germany.
Darmstadt manager Dirk Schuster confirmed that Maclaren is to seal the move to Scotland, reportedly telling German newspaper Bild. “Jamie has agreed a deal with Hibernian. I hope this turns out to be a good move for him and that he can draw attention to himself for the World Cup.
"Hopefully he will help Australia in the summer and then come to back us a better player.”
The move is hoped to give the former Brisbane Roar goal machine more game time ahead of the World Cup in June.
And he could face his Socceroos teammate Tom Rogic later this month, with Hibs facing Celtic on January 28.
Maclaren, 24, joined the German outfit in mid-2017.
