NEIL Lennon and Hibernian are set to part company by mutual consent this week following talks between legal representatives of the two parties in the past two days.

Lennon and his assistant Garry Parker were suspended by the Easter Road club on Friday and Eddie May and Grant Murray put in charge for the Ladbrokes Premiership game against St Mirren on Sunday.

It is understood the 47-year-old, who was appointed back in 2016, will have the remainder of his contract, which runs until 2020, paid up in full.

There have been rumours of dressing room unrest following public criticism of the team's displays and of clashes with the board following the departure of key first team players.

Lennon steered Hibs to the Championship and promotion in his first season in Leith and secured a European place last term by finishing fourth in the Premiership.

May and Murray will remain in charge for the league game against Aberdeen at Easter Road in Sunday.
