Matt Macey is in talks with Hibernian about a January move.
The looked set to leave Arsenal in the summer but was retained as the dust settled on Emi Martinez’s move to Aston Villa.
Having fallen behind Alex Runarsson in the pecking order, the 26-year-old has had to settle for minutes in Premier League 2 and the EFL Trophy.

Macey joined the Gunners from Bristol Rovers in 2011 and has been out on loan three times to Accrington Stanley, Luton and Plymouth.
He featured twice for the first team during Arsene Wenger’s tenure, making his debut against Norwich in the EFL Cup in October 2017. A month later he kept a clean sheet in a 0-0 draw with Red Star Belgrade in the Europa League at the Emirates.
We think this is going to be a loan move for the rest of the season which means Macey will become a free agent in the summer. In his place, we’re assuming Mikel Arteta will promote one of the youth team keepers, possibly Karl Hein or Arthur Okonkwo.
