Thought that Hibs would've tried to get this done early so he could play in the derby, if he can replicate his previous form for hibs should be a decent signing.

The chat seems to be that MB signing for us has been in the bag for some time, but there were contractual issues with the Saudi club. Probably related to the transfer fee etc?

I dont think anyone thought there was a chance of tomorrow, but a good signing for the rest of the season, yep.

He’s proved in the past that he’ll be a very good signing for Hibs as is a good Premiership player.

Does anyone know why he struggled in Saudi ? I know the football over there is a lot more technical and slower then ours due to the heat and Boyle’s biggest asset is his pace ? That maybe something to do with it ?

Also, did he struggle with homesickness as his family never went ?

He didn’t struggle from a football side…did well over there…was complex though, as it often is…wasn’t getting paid etc….

I’d read the football side had went badly and the club were relegated ? Apologies, I’ve obviously read complete crap.

Aye 3 goals in 11 games wasn’t exactly struggling tbf, scored one in their equivalent of the Champions League.

If you translate a few of the Arabic comments on Al-Faisaly’s tweet it sounds like they’re not happy about letting him go either.

Think it’s just due to the relegation and him being a big earner.

He manages fine in the heat when playing for Australia tbf.

He scored 3 goals and one assist in 12 games, in the third-worst team in a 16-team league. He was directly involved in 4 of the 10 goals the team scored when he was on the pitch. He didn't struggle, the team did.

The team got relegated and they couldn't afford him anymore.

So obviously we'll never know the details but have we effectively made somewhere between 500 grand and a million by loaning him over there for 6 months?

He'll probably be back on a higher wage than previously but no doubt hibs will have made a decent amount from this.

Yes. We’ve actually managed to become even more Gordon Gecko than we were when Petrie was here.

Which will cover any wage rise.  We are that money may as well give Rachel a wage rise and pay for the nanny too tbh.   As will of course WC appearance cash.

Easily the best signing of the summer in Scotland.

Seeing it reported that we’ve received £1.5m of the fee already. Obviously don’t know what the agreement has been to get him back but if we’ve just waived the remainder it’s a brilliant deal.
