With the transfer window in full flow, a multitude of names are being linked to teams across Scottish football.
Hibs haven’t made any signings as of yet, but they have been linked with a few attacking options. Ryan Gauld is expected to join up with Hibs this week, whilst Lewis Morgan has also been linked with a loan move to Easter Road.
A fan favourite has also been linked with a return to Leith, but it’s best for everybody if he doesn’t make that switch.
Jason Cummings has once again been the subject of a potential Hibs move, with Neil Lennon’s comments suggesting an interest in the struggling forward, who is misfiring at English League One side Peterborough. Lennon needs attacking options, but the former Hibee isn’t the man for that job.
Cummings isn’t a proven talent at Premiership level
At the start of the season, this could have been a great move. He was on fire initially at Peterborough, netting six times in his first five games. Cummings has endured a wretched run of form since.
The forward has assisted five times this season, but hasn’t netted in any of his last 17 League One appearances. Two goals in the Checkatrade trophy save his record slightly, but Cummings still can’t get into his adopted club’s starting XI.
Since he departed Leith, Cummings’ career has stalled. He failed to make any sort of impact at Rangers last year, and he’s been even worse in League One. His only prolific season came for Hibs in the Championship, so the forward is still to prove his worth in the Premiership.
He is capable of the unthinkable, and he’s a great personality. That can only get you so far though, for when the football starts, Cummings is inconsistent at best.
Hibs need better forward options, but Cummings won’t fill the void at Easter Road. Lennon is better off without the former forward.
