Hibs are said to be interested in a summer move for St Johnstone captain Jason Kerr (Daily Mail).
Kerr is a boyhood fan of the Easter Road club and Hibs could make their move for him in the summer. He is in the final year of his St Johnstone contract and may be available for a fee of £300,000.
Jack Ross’ side are bracing for renewed interest in centre-back Ryan Porteous, who has been subject of interest from Millwall and Queen’s Park Rangers in recent months. Kerr has captained St Johnstone to League Cup final victory this season after scoring a decisive goal in the 3-0 semi-final win over Hibs.
The pair could meet in the Scottish Cup final. Hibs are through to the showpiece event on May 22nd after a 2-0 win over Dundee United on Saturday and St Johnstone face St Mirren on Sunday to see who joins them. Hibs have spent big on Scottish players before, buying Kevin Nisbet for around £250,000 from Dunfermline this season.
