Hibs linked with Irish midfielder Dylan Watts

Hibs have been linked overnight, with a move for Irish midfielder Dylan Watts.

The 21-year-old is a free agent after his contract expired with English Premiership side Leicester City last week.

Watts has a number of clubs chasing his signature and it's now thought Hibs boss Neil Lennon is considering a swoop.

According to the Irish Sun, the Hibees have joined Millwall, Swindon, Dundalk, and Waterford in the chase for his signature.

However, it's thought that Dundalk could be close to persuading him to return to his homeland and beat off the other clubs interested.

Watts started his career with UCD in Ireland, before his transfer to England.

He was loaned back to Irish side Bohemians last January, before his free transfer this summer.
