Hibs to battle Dundee Utd for Dunfermline striker Kevin Nisbet

Last updated : 10 June 2020 By Steve Forbes

According to the Daily Record, Hibs have re-entered the chase to sign Dunfermline striker Kevin Nisbet.

The Hibees had three bids for the striker thrown out on January transfer deadline day last season, with the last thought to be £450,000.

Nisbet, who hit 23 goals last season, has entered the last year on his contract, and it's thought the Pars will now cash-in, following the corona virus outbreak, which has caused clubs across the country big financial problems.

According to the report, Dundee United have made the first move by declaring their interest but have yet to make an offer.

Hibs could also face competition from clubs in England and Italy, but the 23-year-old is said to be keen to stay in Scotland.

There is also the big stumbling block that the club promised to deal with deffered wages before they signed any new players.

However, there is a number of clubs across Europe interested in signing Hibs forward Florian Kamberi, and it's thought any fee could be used to start paying back that money.

Editor's View:

This laddie has been on the Hibees radar for a while, and on paper Nisbet looks an exciting signing.

He has an excellent scoring record over the last few years, and at 23, he could still develop.

A forward line of Cristian Doidge and young Nisbet looks an exciting prospect.

Let's hope the Hibees can pull this off.
