Hibs head coach Jack Ross is seeking a swift conclusion to English interest in Josh Doig, amid links to clubs like Leeds United.
More than half of the teams in England’s Premier League have been linked with Doig following his 2020/21 Scottish Premiership breakthrough at Hibs. Leeds United interest has been prominent since January while the likes of West Ham United have reportedly held strong interest this summer.
Doig has not been part of Hibs’ matchday plans for games against Motherwell and Rijeka this week, but he has been training as normal. Ross says the situation surrounding the 19-year-old who is ‘likely’ to leave Hibs can’t drag on: “Josh feels a bit better with some clarity.
“But that clarity might change. If it does, Josh knows where he stands. I think that is important as Josh is a young man. If we revert back to him being part of our plans, he won’t be agitated by that. He enjoys coming to work but it’s an opportunity for Josh and the club.
“We have to look after ourselves and Josh as a player. I don’t want it to continue for a prolonged period because we want that clarity for us to move forward as a squad and Josh as a person.”
