Serie A side AC Milan are set to rival Leeds United for the signature of Hibs left-back Josh Doig (Daily Mail).

The 19-year-old has won the Scottish Football Writers Association’s Young Player of the Year award for his breakthrough campaign at Hibs, which has helped the Easter Road side finish third in the Scottish Premiership. Leeds United interest has been well-documented, alongside several other English Premier League links.

But a new name has been brought to the table, Italian giants AC Milan. The San Siro side are said to be tracking the Hibs teenager and could rival teams like Leeds United for his signature.

Doig will be fully focused on this weekend’s match amid the speculation, having the chance to become a Scottish Cup winner this Saturday. Hibs play St Johnstone in the final as they look for their first piece of silverware since 2016.

 

Watford are reported to be in talks with Hibs over a move for Doig, the fee believed to be in the region of £4 million, although talks will resume after the weekend. It’s an indication of what someone like AC Milan or Leeds United may have to pay for the full-back.
