Another club has been linked with Hibs’ Josh Doig, English Premier League side West Ham United joining the race for the left-back (Athletic).

The teenager’s links to several clubs south of the border have persisted since January while AC Milan have also been credited with an interest. West Ham United are a fresh name to add to a growing list of suitors interest in Doig.

Hibs’ left-back talent won the SFWA Young Player of the Year award last year for his first full season as a regular at the cinch Premiership club. Head coach Jack Ross won’t stand in his way if a suitable bid of around £5 million is lodged for Doig’s services, a small cost for clubs like West Ham United.

There is fierce competition so West Ham United won’t be the only club looking at Doig. Hibs chairman Ron Gordon was left ‘excited’ but Leicester City interest earlier this year while Leeds United, Arsenal and Watford have all been prominently linked.
