Gambian International Pa Saikou Kujabi Told to Leave Hibs

Scottish premier league highflier's Hibernian FC has told Gambian international full back Pa Saikou Kujabi that he can find a new club. The 26-year-old has fallen out-of-favour at Easter Road, and has not featured this season.

Kujabi last appeared in a Hibs shirt in last season's shambolic Scottish Cup Final loss to the Insolvent one's, when he was red carded. Hibs boss Pat Fenlon said: "We have said to him he can find himself somewhere else. It's difficult for Pa because he has a fantastic attitude, he's a real good character, he trains great day in, day out, and we've never had a problem with him. "But he's a bit like Ivan, he is at a stage of his career where he is not a young player, he needs to be playing regularly."

Kujabi arrived at Easter Road last January after leaving German side FSV Frankfurt. He arrived with the label "The Gambian Roberto Carlos", and at first impressed. However his form soon nose dived and he fell out-of-favour. Kujabi has played 16 times for Hibs.
