FORMER Orient manager Martin Ling has emerged as a surprise contender to take over at Hibernian, as the Scottish Premier League side are looking for a new manager following the resignation of Mixu Paatelainen last Friday.

Ling has been working for Hibs since leaving the O's, setting up a scouting network in England for them, and identifying players that could make their mark at Easter Road.

During that time it seems he has impressed chairman Rod Petrie.

Ling said: "I haven't spoken to anyone at Hibs since Mixu resigned.

The former O's chief had been linked with the managerial vacancy at Port Vale, but it seems that Micky Adams has emerged as the favourite.
