Hibs are set to make a renewed bid to sign Accrington Stanley striker Dion Charles when the January window opens – according to a report.
According to The Sun on Sunday, Jack Ross’ side were keen on landing the 25-year-old during the summer and reportedly had a £200,000 bid thrown out and will try again to lure him north in the new year.
The Northern Irishman is out of contract in the summer and has been bombed out of the Stanley side after refusing to sign a new long-term contract, strengthening Hibs’ hands if they do make their move.
Since being dropped by manager John Coleman, Accrington have claimed just one point and conceded seven goals in two-game after a strong start to the new season.
Hibs have already agreed a deal to sign American striker Chris Mueller in January while Scotland international Kevin Nisbet has confirmed talks are ongoing over a new deal at Easter Road following a host of interested clubs sniffing around him in the summer.
Charles has four caps for Northern Ireland, making his debut earlier this year in a 2-1 defeat by the United States and making his most recent appearance in the draw with Switzerland last month.
