Hibs reject Lech Poznan bid for Florian Kamberi

Last updated : 18 January 2020 By Steve Forbes

Hibs have today rejected a bid from Polish side Lech Poznan for striker Florian Kamberi according to Edinburgh Evening News.

24-year-old Kamberi has impressed the Ekstraklasa side, as they have been watching him over the last few weeks.

It's not clear how much Poznan offered, but they wanted to make a down payment now and pay the rest of the fee this summer - Hibs quickly rejected the offer.

Kamberi has attracted quite a bit of interest since making his loan move to Easter Road from Grasshoppers permanent 18 months ago in a £150,000 deal.

FC Basel were apparently interested in Kamberi, and sent scouts to watch him in action, but they were apparently scared off by Hibs apparent £2m price tag.

Sunderland, then managed by Hibs boss Jack Ross tried to sign the player before he chose Easter Road.

Brentford have also been credited with an interest in the past.

Editor's View:

It's good to see Hibs standing tall when bids come in for our players.

They did so with John McGinn and refused to take a paltry offer or three from Celtic.

The club's finances are in such a good place, they can turn offers down, unless they become too good to ignore.

It does remain to be seen wether Lech will come back for Kamberi, if they do and Hibs sell, the club MUST give manager Jack Ross a decent war chest to replace him.
