✒️ Marc McNulty swaps Sunderland spell for Hibernian loan

Striker makes Easter Road return as loan switch sees him cross the border

31 January 2020

Reading Football Club can announce that striker Marc McNulty has swapped a loan spell at Sunderland for a return to Hibernian on loan until the end of the season.

The Edinburgh-born forward joined the Royals from Coventry City in the summer of 2018 and scored once in 6(+9) appearances before making a loan move to Easter Road exactly one year ago today.

McNulty scored eight goals in 17 appearances for Hibs before returning to RG2 in the summer. 

The forward then became a Black Cat in July and scored five goals in 21 appearances for Sunderland, but he last featured on Wearside as a late substitute in a 4-0 victory against Wycombe Wanderers three weeks ago.

He has now brought his spell at Sunderland to an early end in order to re-sign for the Scottish Premier League side on loan until the end of the season.

Hibernian are currently lying in sixth place in the top tier north of the border and though he hasn’t been registered in time to make his Easter Road return against St Mirren tomorrow, Marc could make his second Hibs debut at Ibrox on Wednesday night when Hibernian travel to title-chasing Rangers.

We would like to wish Marc the best of luck during his loan spell at Hibernian.
