Hibs bid for St Mirren hardman Jim Goodwin

Last updated : 15 January 2012 By Steve Forbes

It has been revealed today that Hibs have made an offer for St Mirren midfielder Jim Goodwin.

Hibees boss Pat Fenlon contacted Buddies boss and former Hibs midfielder Danny Lennon last week and made an offer.

So far it’s not been revealed if that offer for the 30-year-old midfield hard man has been accepted or not.

If Hibs fail to land the player in January for a fee, it’s thought they will approach the former Celtic youth and offer him a pre-contract agreement, as he is out-of-contract in the summer.

Goodwin has been a revelation since joining St Mirren from Hamilton Accies last January, as has been made club captain at the Paisley club.

The former Stockport County, Scunthorpe United, Oldham Athletic and Huddersfield Town player can play midfield, right back and in the centre of defence, which should appeal to Fenlon, as he looks to bolster his squad at Easter Road.

Goodwin has been capped ay U16, U21, B and full international for the Republic of Ireland, earning his only full cap against Finland in Helsinki.
