According to the72.co.uk a Scottish Journo has tweeted about the Championship club having an interest in the Scotland internationalist.

However, the article states Nottingham Forest bid £750,000 for the player, but reports had the last of their THREE bids sitting at £1.9m - rejected by Hibs.

The Easter Road club also turned down a £1m+ offer from Ipswich Town in the summer, and it seems that yet another Championship side has entered the race for the former St Mirren youngster.
