Rumours linking Hibs striker Kevin Nisbet to Celtic have resurfaced alongside Leigh Griffiths’ potential Easter Road return (PLZ).

It has been reported that Celtic are keen on a move for Nisbet. The deal would include former Hibs striker Leigh Griffiths going the other way alongside a sum of cash. Initial rumours of Nisbet’s potential move to Glasgow appeared in July.

Nisbet signed for Hibs last summer after form in the Scottish Championship for Dunfermline. His form in the Premiership earned the Hibs striker a place in Scotland’s Euro 2020 squad during the summer.

Head coach Jack Ross has been impressed by Nisbet’s early season form, scoring twice with two assists. Griffiths signed a new deal at Celtic earlier this summer and was linked with a return to Hibs at the end of last season.

He could return to Leith as part of a potential Celtic deal for Nisbet. The 31-year-old scored 39 times in 78 appearances for Hibs between 2011-13.

Ross has added Hull City forward James Scott to his squad this week and has consistently reiterated his desire to keep key players at Easter Road.
