Hibs defender Ryan Porteous linked with Galatassary

Last updated : 30 May 2020 By Steve Forbes

According to The Herald, Turkish giants Galatasaray are keeping tabs on Hibs youngster Ryan Porteous.

The Super Lig Champions have apparently had the Scotland U21 international watched on a number of occasions, and have apparently made first contact about his availability.

The report also suggests that 'Porto' is being monitored by a number of clubs in Germany, but the Turks are in pole position.

Porteous recently got the call-up to his first Scotland squad, without playing, and he has recently signed a new contract at Easter Road that ties him to the club until 2023.

Hibs would be looking for a substantial fee for the player who has broken through the Hibees youth system over the past few seasons.

Porteous has played 48 games and scored 7 goals since making his debut against Montrose in a Betfred Cup Group stage clash.

Editor's View:

It would be a huge loss if the Hibees were to lose Porto, he has been excellent since making the breakthrough to the first team.

If Galatasary's interest is true, it would take a massive offer for the club to part with one of, if not their brightest, young talents.

It would be a good move for Porteous, but it's still probably a bit early in his career.
