Hibernian manager John Hughes has pulled off a transfer coup by securing a deal to sign Sunderland striker Anthony Stokes.
Stokes has agreed a three-year contract at Easter Road after Sunderland accepted an undisclosed fee for the 21-year-old.
Stokes, who is awaiting international clearance to complete the switch, made a huge impact during a loan spell under Hughes at Falkirk in 2006/07, scoring 14 goals in 16 Scottish Premier League starts.
