Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths won’t have an offer from Hibs just yet as the new manager at Parkhead looks set to make the final decision on his future (Daily Mail).
The forward is a boyhood Hibs fan and starred for the club between 2011-13. He has been with Celtic since 2014, making himself a prolific figure in the club’s modern history with 124 goals. But his time at Parkhead could be ended this summer.
He could leave Celtic for free this summer if the Glasgow club don’t activate an extension clause in his contract, keeping him at the club for a further year if so. But Hibs have been linked with swooping in for a deal.
Easter Road manager Jack Ross said last month he would be interested in Griffiths, but only if it was actually feasible, which it isn’t at present as he is under-contract at Celtic. But this appears to be put further into the distance as whoever Celtic appoint as manager will be given the chance to extend his contract or not.
Griffiths was also linked with a move to Aberdeen but Pittodrie manager Stephen Glass has all but ended the notion of such a move.
