Ryan Porteous says talk of Millwall and moves to Turkey are of little concern to him as he focuses on Hibs’ European campaign.

The defender was subject of a seven-figure bid from English Championship club Millwall earlier this year while Beşiktaş have been linked this summer. Hibs’ academy centre-back will be a key player this season as the club embark on their inaugural UEFA Europa Conference League campaign, the defender keeping an eye on the Scotland squad too.

Porteous said (Sky): “I think everyone knows that I’m really happy at Hibs. I feel I’m progressing well under the gaffer and John Potter; they’re really good with me and we’ve got some big European football games coming up. If we can qualify for the group stages of the Europa Conference League that would be massive for my development.

“I want to try and get consistent league football week in, week out like I did last season; try and make the Scotland squad again. You saw how proud the country was that the boys got there [to Euro 2020] and I think everyone wants to get back there and I certainly want to be involved in that.”
