New Bournemouth sporting director Tiago Pinto will have direct involvement with Hibernian’s decisions.


The former Roma sporting director has been tempted to the Cherries, but his role will not just be limited to the Premier League side.


Bournemouth’s owners also have stakes in Auckland FC, Lorient and Scottish Premiership side Hibernian.



And, according to Spanish outlet Relevo, Pinto will have involvement in Hibernian’s decisions as a result.


Pinto will give priority to Bournemouth, but he will have an element of control over all clubs in the group.



Hibs are currently looking for a new manager and Pinto may have an input into that decision.


The Easter Road side disappointed last season, missing out on finishing in the top six split section.



Hibs will be hoping that the link up with Bournemouth can prove to be fruitful and with Pinto rated as one of the top sporting directors in the game, talented players could be funnelled to Easter Road.
