Michael Stewart believes Hibs could make well over £2 million for Kevin Nisbet amid interest from the likes of Birmingham City.

A bid arrived in the winter transfer window for Nisbet from Birmingham City but this was rejected by Hibs. Brentford have since been credited with an interest in the striker Hibs spent six figures on – approximately around the £200,000 mark – last summer after form at Dunfermline.

Former midfielder Stewart believes he could go for ’10x’ what Hibs paid after bids arrived from Birmingham City (Premier Sports): “The positive thing for Hibs is that doing their business early and bringing in the likes of Daniel Mackay, it means that they are getting potential replacements or good replacements into the side early.

“They can then build and focus on what they have to do moving forward. This allows them to continue the progress they have made this season. Even if they are going to move players on, they are going to make a huge profit.

“They signed Kevin Nisbet for around £200,00. Moving him on for 10x that in the space of a year is terrific business, although you would want to keep him for a little longer.”
