Institute's transfer-listed winger Ivan Sproule has landed a dream move to Scottish Premier League club Hibernian.

Sproule joins the Edinburgh side on an 18-month contract with the Londonderry club understood to be getting around 5,000 for the player.

The Castlederg man, who previously played for Omagh, impressed in a trial with the Edinburgh outfit this week.

Sproule was transfer-listed by new Institute boss Pascal Vaudequin a fortnight ago.

Meanwhile, Institute are to give trials to French and Belgian-based central defenders Patty Yenga and Cedric Makonga over the next two weeks.

The two players linked up with the Londonderry club on Friday.

Yenga is travelling from Paris and Makonga is coming from Belgium where he has been playing in the Third division.

Yenga is 25 and six foot four and Makonga six foot six and both players can also play in midfield.

"Basically they are coming here for a fortnight and I will look at their technical abilities and see if they can do the business for us," says Institute boss Pascal Vaudequin.
