Lennon was at Celtic park on Friday so a bit off business next week.

McGinn will probably be part of any deal. Give us ciftci, GMS and Hendo and the young guy Ajer who played mid for Killie last season plus cash. Do we need anymore lads? Ha ha!

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2017 14:31:23
Why would Celtic want McGinn right now? He has to prove himself in spl for a full season and only then with brown a year older would Celtic be interested in mcginn they have fringe midfielder in abundance there trying to shift out the door? Brown Armstrong rogic bitton mcgregor Forrest Sinclair Hayes? Why do Celtic nd McGinn?

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2017 14:33:08
And a 20% sign on clause. Celtic could sell him for 8 figures in a few years.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2017 15:40:29
I think they will come in for McGinn and I think it will be before this season starts. Rodgers has already started shifting players that are surplus out and their will be more to go. He bought the young black guy from the Russian club for 2.5 mill he didn't NEED him, good managers invest for the future as well as the present. He maybe sees McGinn as a replacement for brown who will be lucky to have another season at Celtic level, he will bee 32/ 33 by then. Just my opinion. We will find out soon enough.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2017 16:11:16
I'm not arguing with Celtic investing BUT is that where Celtic see McGinn as warming the bench and going backwards more importantly surley McGinn dosnt want to be warming the bench for a season after basically playing every season for the last 5/ 6?

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2017 17:50:22
Scott Brown is 32 2moro, in his own words it took him quite a while to learn his position as a holding mid, McGinn is already ahead of him from that point of view, he is a natural in that position imo. Having NcGinn their will give Rodgers the chance to bleed him in at the same time as resting Brown and that makes sense to me if you can afford to do that as a club. The other reason I think it might happen is because their has obviously been words between Lennon and the boArd re just how much cash they will release following the sale of JC, selling McGinn might just solve that problem, giving Lennon the money to bring in strikers etc. Celtic might even agree to lend McGinn back till the break. One thing I don't see happening is McGinn being allowed to run his contract down to a year, Hibs will not allow that to happen, just my opinion!

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2017 17:56:34
There are other avenues celtic could go down interms of capturing Mcginn. without leaving him warming the bench and instead keeping him playing week in week out in the SPL. Pre contracts, first refusal. He stays at Hibs for 1 more season (or until January) and grows in the top flight, celtic if they want take him and in exchange hibs take someone on loan/ permanent as a sweetener for the new season. For me There is something going on behind the scenes, I think it's been too quiet in the media concerning Mcginn. His fate I feel is sealed and any other offers/ interest are being swiftly knocked back.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2017 18:08:24
Didn't they punt Ciftci already?
Even if they haven't, no ta.

GMS and Hendo yes, plus enough cash to pay the big sell on fee to Saints and leave enough for a proven striker.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2017 18:35:46
I've all ready explained that Arp, leaving him at ER till the break, bleeding him in to the Celtic team. 90 Ciftci remains a Celtic player and he is only 24/ 25 did well with Dun Utd. Arp I agree that something is going on and that just might be the reason Lennon was at Parkhead on Fri. One thing is for sure, Hibs won't let the contract run down to a 1yr. That would give RP piles if he hasn't already got them.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jun 2017 18:14:40
Well! Another week goes by and nothing, well, nothing but rumours. I read that Sevco have offered Whittaker £6K a week, maybe it's a rumour!

Believable0 Unbelievable1

23 Jun 2017 19:37:11
I'm sure we'll see something happen next week! Intreagued to see what kind of striker lennon can attract to the club. We've got our pacey forward (murray), need a target man (holt replacement) and a goalscorer (cummings replacement) . Also atleast 1 midfielder, then we're ready to go!

Agree0 Disagree1

24 Jun 2017 13:14:42
Stop worrying all is in hand x.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2017 23:28:11
Love to sign hendo but a fee would have to be paid. We need funds to bring in a striker we have paid 150k for marciano. Would like to see oli shaw feature a wee bit this season future prospect?

Believable1 Unbelievable0

22 Jun 2017 23:44:05
Lennon has said that Oli Shaw will feature this season, but they probably won't throw him in. They will bleed him this season, he needs to bulk up a bit. I still have it in my head that McGinn will go to Celtic and that one or two Celtic players plus cash will come out way. Hendo might be one of them. I'm sure that unless McGinn signs an extension then he will be sold, Hibs will not let his contract run down to a yr, it would lower any transfer value.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Jun 2017 15:52:56
It might mean nowt, but he's showing on wiki as ours! Hendo that is.

Agree1 Disagree1

24 Jun 2017 13:15:11
No it doesn't big l.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2017 19:39:53
A bit of speculation about Hendo and Whittaker signing 2moro. If true its certainly a step in the right direction.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

22 Jun 2017 20:08:55
Heard about Henderson, 3 year deal seemingly, it wod certainly lift MY spirits if true, won't hold my breath tho.

Agree0 Disagree1

22 Jun 2017 21:08:09
Any truth in Mcgeough on the way out? Just hearing the possibility of hendo coming in plus the long awaited decision of commons to be made by the end of the month, lennon also has a CDM lined up on the radar. if they are on way in, does this put any truth into Mcgeough going the other way? Also, concerned that no moves have been made for front men, surely we'll get someone in next week in preparation for pre-season/ league cup? Let them get a feel for the team rather than just throughing them into the first team at the start of August.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2017 21:21:03
I heard a while back that Aberdeen were interested in McGeough but I ignored it due to his injury record, haven't heard anything else. If they want him, do a swap for Rooney!

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2017 21:53:27
Na, wee lenny will hold out for Gary Hooper on loan! Lol. I like DMc but can't get him for 3 games in a row through fitness issues. Would really like to see moult in but I just can't see hibs parting with that sort of cash. I think a big name front man may come in but only season loan deal/ free contract. Hopefully we spend some though, hendo and 1 other.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2017 22:41:12
I would love the Gary Hooper loan deal, might be a yr to soon wi that one. Moult would be a great signing if we're also getting Hendo and Whittaker. That would put a smile on my face!

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Jun 2017 12:12:19
It's bn reported on here that Liam Boyce wod b out with our finances, cost to much, wouldn't b feasible, ST UP 1.4 million banked new strip selling well new sponsorship? BUT Aberdeen and hearts both meet the realese clause of 500k? But we couldn't or didn't? I'm beginning to panic now it looks like we are going to rely on last seasons development players and bargain basement loan deals to try and undercover a gem
FANS HAVE BACKED THEM! WHY ARE THEY NOT BACKING US!

Believable0 Unbelievable0

22 Jun 2017 12:36:11
I said this a week ago, and it is a bit concerning. To make an impact on our return we need to spend cash, even if it means extending ourselves a bit. Albeit with all the current income we should be able to afford a couple of decent strikers and a goal scoring mid. I don't think the blame lies with LD, I have never believed that she had full control of the money. I still think the tash will be saying how much we have to spend. Some weeks ago, Lennons mates Hartson and Sutton were saying things like "Lenny's shopping in bargain basement" and "if we don't support him financially, he will be off " I looked at that as a sign of things were not harmonium when it came to agreeing cash for players and I think their was some kind of fall out between Lennon and the board. I can only hope that Lennon is the man I think he is and that he fights his corner. It is not in his iterest to go in to the season with a team that is not able to compete at the highest level and it's certainly not in ours.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2017 12:47:50
For a couple of seasons i had the feeling of a family atmosphere at ER a togetherness if you want, all for one,
How quickly when the fans ambitions are obviously not going to be matched by the board, does it feel like us and them!

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2017 13:22:53
From a financial perspective, I don't ever recall a time when the fans ambitions were matched by the board. However their is surely an opportunity at this time, especially when you consider our financial position, to make a few really decent signings to give us the feel good factor for our return to the Prem. I have heard that next week should see us making a move in that direction, if true, I hope they live up to the fans expectations!

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2017 13:38:05
I'm amazed but not surprised with rumours that NL is showing frustration over signings. I say amazed merely from the point of view that the board must have made promises to Neil to get him in as manager in the first place. That's why there's still a wee bit of me excitedly checking the media each day for news about a Hibs signing. The "not surprised" bit will spring into my mind if none surfaces though! We're Hibby, s. We should be used to it lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2017 16:08:21
Hibs and the yams interested in Lafferty, yams deep in talks, apparently! TBH I'm not sure about that one, but I think he's more suited to them.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Jun 2017 11:19:00
Looks like that's Marciano on board!

Believable1 Unbelievable0

22 Jun 2017 11:26:55
Excellent. 150000 Euro seemingly. Bargain!

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2017 11:33:35
I'm happy with that, but I have a feeling their will be a large sell on clause! Never the less, a great signing courtesy of Lennons connections. Hopefully he can dig up a few more GGTTH!

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Jun 2017 11:46:31
Apparently 50%.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Jun 2017 11:18:48
Aberdeen apparently offered £250K for Stevie May, Preston asked them for £400K. For long enough I've thought he would be a very good signing for us but not at that money and not based on what he has achieved since going down south. Injuries apart, His form and goal scoring has been shocking! I wouldn't pay that kind of cash, to big a risk.

Believable2 Unbelievable1

22 Jun 2017 02:11:04
He would still be worth £1m+ if he wasn't injury prone.

I still believe he would've got himself going in 2nd season with Shef Wed if he hadn't started getting injuries.


If he stayed fit, he would definitely score 1/ 2 average in SPL.

I remember when we signed James Collins for £200k and i rightfully said what a waste of money and we could've got much better players for free at the time! I got abuse on here but peoplw went quiet when they realised i was right haha.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2017 02:30:11
Injuries indeed have played a big part in this young mans career aged 24 out injured for year and half, However he's played a total of 180 games scored 84 most of them in spl
2 games in Europe 2 goals to suggest this is shocking beggars belief!

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2017 11:07:14
I would jump at the chance to get the old Stevie May to Hibs and I'm aware of his record. Since going south he he has scored 8 in 51 games he has been back playing since Jan and I would not have been against him joining for a few months on loan with a view to a permanent deal. I just feel at £400K it could be a bit of a risk. I don't think it will make much difference, as it stands it looks like he wants to go to Aberdeen!

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2017 11:09:54
£400,000 is peanuts imo.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jun 2017 11:15:57
I suppose that would depend on how much money you have to spend! If our record on transfer fees is anything to go by, £400K would be twice as much as the last time we shelled out cash for a player, Collins, which was a long time ago. I do hope that changes and we spend some cash very soon but I'm not holding my breath!

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2017 01:45:36
Liam Boyce away to Burton Albion.
Thank god he never joined us a try lad with no ambition, another pre madonna it's all about me me me. Careers finished hardly any tele and you'll be lucky if he scores 10 a season. What a waste.

Agree1 Disagree1

23 Jun 2017 12:32:05
No not bitter tomo, just can't get my head around a player going to a lesser club, A club with no ambition and will achieve nothing. At least if he signed for a premier league team he had a chance of winning trophies and play in Europe.

The article I've just read gave me the impression that fyfie could still sign a hibs contract if Lennon climbs down after fyfie snubbed his 3 year deal.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

20 Jun 2017 23:30:49
He was made an offer, he asked his agent to try and get a bit more. His agent came back and said their was no movement. Fyvie went on holiday, came back called the club to say he would accept and they said " the deal is off the table" Kenny Millar said "he never declined the deal, he took to long"

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Jun 2017 00:04:08
Darren mcgregor, kenny Millars buddy wrote article in sun today Wednesday and dosnt mention any holidays a 3 year deal on top flight wages was snubbed by fyfie it reads, surley the sun and it's reliable repoerters wouldn't lie?

His agent advised him to sign before he went on holiday.

Simon Slavchek rumoured to be signing. Was once a £2.5 Mill signing for Sporting CP. Went to Bolton on loan ( presumably under Lennon ) played 1 game and got injured.

It' all down to Sky cash. The fact is that Scotland have more Sky viewers per capita than any other European country including England and we get buttons.

We've only got ourselfs to blame we knocked sky back and thought we could make more money with our own broadcasting? That fell through! Rescued by setanta, then back on blended knee to sky to be offered a pittance! However called that shot should b shot!

Agree0 Disagree1

21 Jun 2017 01:41:04
Refrase that tomo The auld firm were the only two teams to apose the deal, the other 10 teams resigned out the league which is a two year process meaning rangers and Celtic had no one to play, they both backed down, the other 10 rescinded their resignations went back to sky and we were told where to go. So if the truth be known the old firm have a lot to answer for.

You mean, like Cummings?

If Lennon goes we can get Stubbs back.
I would not mind that.
Not one bit.
We drew a lot of games last season and I don't think the football was anywhere near as good.

Agree0 Disagree1

19 Jun 2017 22:12:53
It would appear that their has been some kind of disagreement re the use of the Cummings money to bring in players. I don't think Lennon will take any garbage from RP if he doesn't get what he wants, and let's face it the cash should be spent on strikers, he will walk.

He's been linked before, he'll be linked again as long as John is at Hibs.
He's also a full-back.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2017 19:52:55
Stephen was desperate to join his brother at Hibs last season so much so that he got a John to tell Neil Lennon this, Lennon decided we didn't need him at the time and he signed for St Mirren a few days later .

Craig sibbald being linked with hibs?

Believable1 Unbelievable2

18 Jun 2017 14:20:13
I read that, I also think their will be a development fee to be paid. I've read it is in excess of £200K.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jun 2017 16:18:20
Fit young lad and a fan's favourite.
Not sure he's any better a player than Stanton or Harris being honest but Stanton will probably go the other way to save a fee.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Jun 2017 19:47:26
I think he looks like a decent player. I'd happily have him at Hibs. He will be fed up trying to make it to the SPL with Falkirk.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Jun 2017 22:51:36
Great player and still has plenty of potential he'd be a tremendous signing! He's played too many games at Falkirk now to be considered inexperienced but I think Lennon could definitely take his game to the next level. If the rumoured fee of £200k is correct personally I'd bite their hands off and if Stanton could be used as leverage even better.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jun 2017 11:56:36
Great player always been a Bain in our live every time we play Falkirk. Having said that the type of squad Lennon is building I'm sure he would be a squad player unless like McGinn we get the best out of him.

Would kris commons signature be regarded as a marquee signing?
Coz I think it's happening folks.

Believable4 Unbelievable0

17 Jun 2017 16:15:44
Believable Tomo. But again going back to your comment earlier on about moving forward, how is this moving forward? there's a high chance he'll sign for one of the larger contracts we have to offer and we'll be lucky to get 15 games out of him next season. He's crippled with injurys in his thighs/ back. A lot of money for probably little return. Hendo should be top priority.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jun 2017 19:47:24
Thought it might happen when him and his missus and kids got back, he'll get more from us than the just coaching offer elsewhere.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Jun 2017 23:05:06
It was a post to ask the hibs family what they thought about commons signing? I also think Henderson wod b a better option if he can't regain full fitness.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jun 2017 10:45:36
Defs agree would take Henderson over commons any day hope we try to pursuit that one.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Jun 2017 11:04:28
Be better using money on strikers despite the fact I like commons just can't justify him and Whittaker over two strikers.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jun 2017 14:18:38
LD saying they are pursuing their core targets, I have to believe that inclues two strikers. Commons would have been a marquee signing 2 or 3 yrs ago, not now. It was a wee bit unfair to judge his performances when we had him on loan, he hadn't played for over a year, if he can get fit he might be able to do us a turn, but I'm not holding my breath!

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Jun 2017 14:50:16
Agreed, he looked useful by the time his loan was done despite lacking fitness.
With Swanny too it could be we end up playing one up top with those two pushing on from midfield.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jun 2017 23:17:00
I definetly think since lennon has stated we are looking to finish 2nd we need to sign quality players for prem level. Love to bring stokes back but don't think it will happen so would like us to push for liam boyce and moult. Especially since cummings is off. Why don't we try for liam henderson in midfield since fyvies out?

Believable0 Unbelievable2

17 Jun 2017 08:01:54
No chance hibs will invest 1M+ for Moult and Boyce, dreamland to even suggest that. One of them at an absolute push. Would like to see Greg Stewart come in on season loan, bit more realistic!

Agree0 Disagree1

17 Jun 2017 14:03:59
Hibs just announced the Cummings deal is done.
We've just sold a potential 20 goals for a million or more, why not invest that straight into two strikers who could potentially score 20-30 goals between them and give us a serious chance of European football next season or another cup?

It wouldn't cost us anything since it's a fee we just recouped.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Jun 2017 16:39:22
Lennon has money to spend and £1m is mot out the question for the right players.

we will sign free transfers only.

John Baird of Falkirk signing for ICT, to be announced early next week. Personally would have taken him at ER for a season. Always played well against us.

Believable0 Unbelievable3

16 Jun 2017 20:51:25
John Baird? We're trying to move forward? MR Baird has had more clubs than jack Nicholas, never prolific even in the lower leagues, where I made add he's played 90% of his football? He's 32 years old and I'm afraid a couple o good games against the hibs dosnt make him a player
Your allowed your opinion however this opinion is very wrong lol.

Agree4 Disagree1

15 Jun 2017 15:56:45
Been told by a close relative of Jason Holt that he's been offered a deal by Hibs. He's deemed surplus to requirements by Caixinha and has been told to find a new club so no fee would be necessary. He also has interest from a couple of league 1 clubs in England but is in no rush to make a decision.

Believable1 Unbelievable3

15 Jun 2017 16:15:40
Jason holt has 3 years of a contract left but the Huns are willing to let him go for nowt! Neither wonder they have problems with their cash flow.

Agree0 Disagree1

15 Jun 2017 16:46:19
Not a bad player, will want a pay off and that's not going to happen.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Jun 2017 18:03:49
Surely if he has 3yrs left and is told to find a club they'll expect any suitors to buy out the contract?

There's no way they can afford a payoff.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jun 2017 18:50:18
If he signed in 2015 which he did, he either signed another contract or extension since or he signed a 5yr initial contract! I don't remember hearing or reading either.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Jun 2017 20:45:50
He did sign a new contract to 2020 and he will be on good money, why would he leave that kind of cash.

Agree2 Disagree0

You'd think they'd try to use him to get Walker too if he's surplus.

ST's £4 Mill JC £1.4 TV £1Mill walk ups 3,000 £1.5Mill sponsorship, Cup semi share, cash for winning the Championship, total £9Millish! If McGinn goes £11Mill and we can't afford £500K for Moult! You won't get a really good striker who's out of contract, clubs don't allow classy strikers to get out of contract. You need to pay the going rate and that means that Hibs payment structure gets kicked in to touch when it comes to strikers that score goals! We've signed 3 players and although I'm not disappointed I'm not getting the wow factor. We need to bring in a name and the money IS there.

You left out the cost of the wage bill, the running costs of the club in general, and the debt repayment plan (which they'll likely try to pay off as early as possible if there's extra funds for it if they're sensible) .

We've had no word of anything regarding McGinn so knock that off too and it's considerably less than that.

Then there's shareholder dividends/ any bonuses owed too, and no club operates on spending whatever is available after expenses.

I have a feeling Lennon might have a target or two abroad he's looking at too, but that will be kept quieter and take longer.

With respect, I would have needed the accounts to see what the actual running costs were. Dividends, I woulfn't think their would be to much of that. If you can't run a club in Scotland on the piss poor wages that we pay on the income that we have and will bring in this season without investing in a decent striker then the games a bogey! The fact is, we are sitting around 11,500 ST's if they brought in a marquee signing they would probably sell another
2,000. Speculate to accumulate isn't a phrase I've heard at ER since the George Best signing. We live in hope 90.

I agree with you, there's still money there to spend. We won't commit any money from JC's transfer until it's done and dusted though, and I'm cynical after the last few decades of financial dealings, but if the figures you've listed are correct I'd expect Lennon to have all of the JC money to spend since it's not detrimental to our finances and as you said we haven't signed a bigger name besides Ambrose.

That's JC agreed terms, so if your right 90 we should have the cash in shortly and we should maybe see a player or two coming in soon. The one thing that gives me hope is that Lennon won't be messed about the same way RP messed previous managers around.

Hopefully so.
It could also be that Lennon isn't overly sold on what is around nearby and wants to spend on someone else he needs more money for.

There's a lot of the window to go, I doubt he'll rush anything just to bring bodies in.

Local newspaper Nottingham reports Cummings completed a successful medical yesterday, and should be announced officially no later than Monday.
