Hibs accept offer for striker Simon Murray

According to the Scottish Sun, Hibs have accepted a bid for out-of-favour striker Simon Murray.

The report claims the offer comes from a club in South Africa.

Hibs knocked back a £100,000 offer from Turkish club Elazigspor in January before he was loaned out to Dundee for the rest of the season.

Motherwell then had a £50,000 bid knocked back earlier this summer, but it's now believed the unnamed club have had an offer accepted by the Easter Road hierarchy.

Murray, 26, is also said to be interesting former clubs Dundee and Dundee Utd, but he now has a decision to make about his future.

The Hibees are looking to finance a move for former loan player Jamie Maclaren from German club Darmstadt, and any fee received for Murray would probably be put towards a return to Easter Road for the Aussie striker.
