English Premiership pair linked with Hibs' John McGinn

Hibs midfielder John McGinn has been linked with a summer move to the English Premeirship.

According to the Mail Online, Brighton and Bournemouth are weighing up a £3m move for the in demand former St Mirren player.

The paper claims that both clubs have enquired about McGinn.

McGinn will have one year left on his contract come the summer, but Hibs are expected to find it tough to hold on to their prize asset.

Nottigham Forest and Ipswich Town both had numerous bids for the player turned down last summer, and both are expected to be interested again.

Middlesbrough and Fulham have both been linked with the player in the past, and there is also the constant rumours of a move along the M8 to Celtic.

However, Hibs boss Neil Lennon rates the Scotland international at £5m, and will be hoping to get as much as possible, especially with the apparent 33% sell-on clause St Mirren have after his move to Easter Road in 2015.

McGinn has been superb for the Hibees in their first season back in the Premiership and was nominated for the Scottish PFA Player of the Year award, losing out to former Hibee Scott Brown.
