Hibs keeper Laidlaw heading to England?

Last updated : 09 May 2019 By Steve Forbes

Out-going Hibs keeper Ross Laidlaw is apparently attracting interest from English club Accrington Stanley.

The 26-year-old has been told by Hibs that his contract will not be renewed this summer and he is free to leave the club.

Laidlaw has spent the second half of the season on loan with Dundee Utd, but has only managed one appearance for the Tannadice outfit, only making his debut at the weekend, in a 1-0 loss to Morton.

The Scottish Sun is reporting that English League One side are keeping tabs on the 6ft 5in former Raith keeper.

It's unknown if United will challenge for his signature and offer him a deal to stay in Dundee.

Laidlaw managed just 27 appearances for the Hibees since signing in 2016, including Europa League qualifiers against Brondby and Molde and a Scottish League Cup Semi Final against Celtic at Hampden.

He has struggled to compete with the outstanding Ofir Marciano and on-loan Liverpool keeper Adam Bogdan over the last 12 months and finds himself heading for the exit door down Leith.
