Hibernian boss Jack Ross has provided an update on left-back Lewis Stevenson’s future at the Easter Road club. Stevenson, who is on his way back from an ankle injury, has been at Hibernian for 15 years.
The player’s contract expires at the end of the season.
However, Ross is confident that a deal can be done to keep the player at the Edinburgh club.
“In fantastic condition”
“I think Lewis is somebody that I don’t think we would be in any rush not to have at the football club. It’s not just because of his previous achievements here. How he is as a professional, he’s still in fantastic condition for a player that’s in his 30s now”.
The Hibernian boss then went on to list the many attributes he feels that the veteran player has.
“He very, very rarely misses training and games, this is unusual for him to have suffered an injury and even then he’s came back earlier than anticipated. I think Lewis by his own admission has said that he’s often just the easiest player in the world to deal with at Hibs, and he’s just continued to do it over the years.”
Hopeful that deal can be sorted soon
Ross then disclosed that a new deal for the player can hopefully be sorted in the next few weeks.
“I think both of us are probably fairly relaxed and knowing he knows my opinion of him, and I think I know his opinion of the football club and where’s he at, and there is something that can be taken care of as the weeks go on” Ross concluded.
