Hibernian winger Matthew Kennedy has returned to Everton following a loan spell at Easter Road.

The 20-year-old former Kilmarnock player scored once in 16 appearances for Hibs.

Head coach Alan Stubbs told the club's official website: "We would like to wish Matthew all the best for the rest of the season."

Kennedy has represented Scotland at every youth level, winning his only Under-21 cap in 2012 against Portugal.

Stubbs, who was on the Everton coaching staff before being appointed as Hibs manager, believes Kennedy has performed well since arriving at the club last summer.

"He has been great throughout his time here at Hibernian and we would like to thank Everton for letting us take one of their promising young players on loan," he said.
