James Scott is wanted by Scottish Premiership side Hibs as head coach Jack Ross looks to the Hull City attacker for forward reinforcements (DR).

The 20-year-old joined Hull City from Motherwell in January 2020 but he has struggled to cement himself as a regular at the English Championship club.

St Mirren manager Jim Goodwin denied interest in the forward earlier in the transfer window after rumours linked him to the Hull City forward. Hibs are the latest Scottish side to be mooted as a potential landing spot for Scott on a loan deal.

Ross is trying to secure a deal to bring Orlando City forward Chris Mueller into Hibs six months earlier than planned. Mueller has already signed a pre-contract with Hibs but won’t arrive until January under the current agreement.

Hibs have also booted out an Aberdeen bid for Martin Boyle while striker Christian Doidge will be out for at least 3-4 months with an Achilles injury.
