Dunfermline may be keeping tabs on the situation regarding Kevin Nisbet and a proposed £3 million move to Celtic.
The striker left Dunfermline last summer for a six-figure fee to join Hibs. Nisbet scored 23 goals in his only season at East End Park and his 18 strikes in 44 games in Edinburgh in the 2020/21 term have caught the eye of Celtic ahead of their rebuild under new management.
Soon-t0-be Celtic manager Eddie Howe has been presented with the striker as the Glasgow club run the rule over the Hibs man in line for a berth at Euro 2020 with Scotland this summer. Dunfermline will be able to profit if any move goes through.
The Scottish Championship club inserted a sell-on clause into the deal that took Nisbet from Dunfermline to Hibs, sitting at around 30% of any future fee recuperated from the striker’s next move. It means that if Nisbet was to move for a fee of around £3 million, Dunfermline would stand to make £900,000 at least.
It would be a transformative amount of money for the club, especially in the current climate of Covid-19. Stevie Crawford’s side will be playing second-tier football again next term after losing to Raith Rovers in the Premiership promotion play-offs.
