Hibernian are set to hold talks with striker Kevin Nisbet about his future, a report from The Edinburgh Evening News has claimed.
Nisbet scored 18 goals in 45 appearances during his debut campaign with Hibernian last season, having joined the club from Dunfermline the previous summer, with that form seemingly attracting plenty of interest from elsewhere.
Championship side Birmingham City reportedly saw offers for the 24-year-old turned down late in the winter window, while League One promotion hopefuls Sunderland, and Scottish giants Celtic, were also credited with an interest.
Now it seems as though Hibernian ought to be bracing themselves for another busy summer of speculation with regards to Nisbet’s future.
According to this latest update, no clubs have yet made bids for the striker, but a number of as yet unnamed sides are said to be weighing up the prospect of making an offer for Nisbet.
Which club do these 21 former Sunderland players now play for?
In response, Hibernian are expected to hold crunch talks with Nisbet about the striker’s future when he returns to training for pre-season.
Nisbet is set to link up with Hibs on July 3rd, later than the rest of the squad, with the striker having been given extra time off following his involvement in Scotland’s Euro 2020 campaign.
It does feel as though this update ought to spark something of a response from the likes of Birmingham and Sunderland.
Nisbet has an excellent record from his time with Hibernian last season, which could mean he is capable of being something of an asset in the Football League.
Indeed, when you look as their squads last season, it does seem as though these two clubs could certainly benefit from some extra depth upfront, particularly if Sunderland are unable to secure a new deal for Charlie Wyke.
As a result, you do feel as though these two clubs may want to move quickly here if they are not one of those currently weighing up a move, to ensure another side does not beat them to it.
