Kilmarnock striker Colin Nish has today spoken of his ambition to play for Hibs after being linked with a move to Easter Road

Nish, 26, is a big Hibs fan, but has now admitted that talks about his future have started to affect his game.

The 6ft 4in forward has turned down a new deal at Kilmarnock, meaning he can leave in the summer for nothing, but the Hibees have been constantly linked with a move for ex Dunfermline hitman in the January transfer window.

With Nish being out of contract in the summer, Hibs can speak to him once the window opens in January about an end of season Bosman move to Edinburgh, although Kilmarnock would probabley accept a fee of £100,000 for the player.

Speaking on the possible move to Hibs, Nish said:

"I always wanted to play for Hibs as I'm a fan but I know the grass isn't always greener on the other side.

"I have not played as well in the last couple of games - when you start thinking about things like that it affects you.

"I love it at Killie and don't know where I'd be if it hadn't been for Jim Jefferies and Billy Brown. I was offered a deal but didn't feel it was the right time. I have a contract to the end of the season."
