Kevin Nisbet insists his Birmingham City transfer scenario is behind him as the Hibs striker looks to a potential national team debut.

Steve Clarke has called upon the Hibees frontman for the first time after his form at Easter Road this season. Such performances almost won him a move to Birmingham City earlier this year, Nisbet handing a transfer request in to try and make it happen.

It didn’t come to fruition but Nisbet insists it’s water under the bridge (Evening Times): “I think it’s easy for people to say now that thankfully he’s stayed. At the time it was a massive opportunity for me and it didn’t work out. That’s football. The day after the transfer window, I put it behind me and my attitude was spot on.

“That’s the reason I’m back in the team and scoring goals. Even all through January and after, the aftercare I got from Jack Ross, Pottsy [assistant manager John Potter] and all the backroom staff was great. It made that time a lot easier.

“[Jack] was brilliant. He just told me to keep on training well, keep coming on and playing well, because obviously the boys were doing so well and so I didn’t really expect to come back in right away. I just needed to take my chance. I did that and now I am back in.”
