Hibs manager Neil Lennon has revealed that any move to bring Scott Allan to the club would probably take until the final few days of the transfer window.
The Hibees have already agreed a pre-contract with Allan but still want to bring him along the M8 now.
Lennon admitted there hasn’t been any real progress as he continues to reshape his squad.
The Hibs boss has confirmed his interest in Morgan but there’s little sign of a move happening imminently.
“I don’t know where we are with that. Obviously that might go to the last couple of days of the window, I would imagine,” Lennon said, as quoted by the Edinburgh Evening News.
“No, nothing. I think he may be available to go out on loan. He’s the type of player that we like and with [Martin] Boyle being out, we need a replacement. We’re looking at not only Lewis but a few other options as well.”
With Allen already tied to a pre-contract, it will make things easier when it comes to negotiating a move this month.
The likelihood of him going on loan elsewhere will have reduced massively.
With a permanent deal already signed at Easter Road it’s hard to see any one else having much interest now.
The Cabbage have already added Ryan Gauld this month meaning a move for Allan isn’t really a priority.
It would definitely give Lennon some extra options but there’s a pressing need for a striker.
Lennon has little over a week now to get something over the line in his side’s fight for a top-six place.
