Hibs’ Kevin Nisbet is a target for Celtic this summer – and former Easter Road striker Leigh Griffiths could be used as part of a potential deal (DM).
Nisbet has a host of clubs south of the border chasing his signature following an impressive debut season for Hibs last term, Russian Premier League club FC Krasnodar a surprise suitor. But Celtic interest is most prominent, linked with the Scotland international throughout the summer.
Griffiths was linked with a move back to Hibs – where he featured between 2011-13 – prior to signing a new Parkhead deal. Hibs head coach Jack Ross was open to the move if circumstances allowed it, but after Griffiths penned a new one-year deal at Celtic earlier, a move looked off.
But a new report says the Celtic forward could ’emerge’ as a makeweight to bring the price down in a deal for Nisbet, who Hibs rate at £4 million. Ross’ side beat Nisbet’s former club Dunfermline Athletic 4-1 on Saturday ahead of the new cinch Premiership season.
