Hibs could be set to lose Martin Boyle in the upcoming summer transfer window amid Celtic links and foreign interest (Scottish Sun).

The Easter Road club resisted Celtic interest at the start of 2020 and at the beginning of this season for their 28-year-old winger. But foreign clubs are now interested alongside clubs ‘at home’ courtesy of a £500,000 buyout clause in his contract.

Fellow Australian international Jackson Irvine is also attracting interest, with his short-term Hibs deal set to expire after this weekend’s Scottish Cup final with St Johnstone. Hibs ended their Scottish Premiership season in third place following a 0-0 draw with Celtic on Saturday.

Boyle has formed a brilliant strike partnership with Kevin Nisbet and Christian Doidge at Easter Road. Hibs would usually net seven figures for a player of Boyle’s calibre but the winger’s representatives inserted the £500k clause into his most recent contract extension signed last year.

Boyle joined Hibs in 2015 and has won the Scottish Cup and Scottish Championship during his time in Leith. He has also made over 200 appearances and has scored 15 goals this season.
