Jack Ross has reacted to reported interest from Celtic for young defender Josh Doig.
The Bhoys have been tracking the development of the 18-year-old who has made himself a mainstay for Hibs, featuring in 17 Scottish Premiership games during the current campaign.
Goal recently reported that an offer of £1m could be enough to convince the Edinburgh club to part ways with Doig, who is an attacking fullback that caused huge problems for league leaders Rangers earlier in the campaign.
Ross provided an update after Celtic’s reported interest and claims that no worthy offers have been submitted to the club as of yet.
Quoted by the Daily Record, Ross said: “We’ve had young players who have performed well this season and there have been notes of interest from clubs.
“As it stands, there’s nothing that would see any of those young players depart. But we will see what happens in the days left in the window.
“I’m loath to say with certainty that nothing will ever happen because it could change. But not at the moment.”
Transfer Tavern Verdict
Doig would be an exciting addition to the squad, on the back of Jeremie Frimpong’s departure from the club to Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday.
The youngster has averaged 2.1 tackles and 1.2 aerial battles won per game during the 2020/21 campaign, illustrating that he has great potential for the future.
There is still time for the Bhoys to grab themselves a bargain this month – and Doig would define exactly that.
