Nisbet v Griffiths rumours?

Celtic won't pay the going rate for Nisbet, Celtics only play is to renew Leighs contract as he's obviously waiting for the offer first, but he won't be signing that offer to then be traded.
But if that happened, I'd look elsewhere for a forward and sell Nisbet at value.

I think Celtic are very keen to sign Nisbet, and I fully expect him to end up at Parkhead once they meet Hibs valuation. He will be desperate to go there as well being a Glasgow boy and no doubt a Celtic supporter. Money will be huge as well. Not quite sure what it is about Kevin Nisbet, he is clearly a talented striker and had a very good first season for Hibs in the top league, but I wouldn't have thought he was the type to take Celtic to the next level. To be honest, despite him scoring about 17 goals for Hibs, I have never quite taken to the guy. All that nonsense at the end of the January window didn't help.

Not sure if there is anything in the Nisbet/Griffiths swap story. I am fairly sure Hibs want Leigh at Easter Road, and I am confident that will happen. I know that Griffiths has had his problems at Celtic with his off-field stuff, but I find it hard to understand why they would be willing to part with the best scottish striker of his generation, for a relative youngster with only one full season in the top league.

Can’t see it.
I expect Leigh to go abroad or south for his last big pay day.
Nissie would be an underwhelming signing for the Smellies who really need to up their game.
However, I don't think he travels well! Hopefully with his past experiences, 'large family' and 'wealth' he will see Hibs as his mental salvation before retirement.

After that goal perhaps even more so

I get your attitude toward Nisbet. He's a good player, but he doesnt excite me as a supporter in the way LG did, and hopefully will do again.

They'll sell Edouard for a decent fee and we'll probably end up with about 3 million for Nisbet if Celtic want him. I'd be negotiating 3 million, Leigh on a 3 year deal with the smellies paying his wages.

I am sure I recently read he didn't follow Rantic or Celgers. Although other admins disagree, I thought he had a great half hour for Scotland last night, both attacking, scoring and defending well. He can skip Glasgow and head down south, he will make it in my opinion. Just let us see him in a Hibs shirt for a season, please?

If he has a good tournament, I would maybe sell him this summer.
Prices always go up on the back of an international competition and average players who perform well wind up getting money spinning moves.

If the value is there this summer, I say we take it. while he could stay and perform and still earn a move in a years time, I think the Euros make it better financially this term possibly.

Scoring last night was just what he needed. If he goes on and plays well in the Euros then it could start the ball rolling..
If that's what happens then so be it.

I think he’ll be off in the summer, and we’ll never see him live in a Hibs shirt.

I don’t think he’ll go to Celtic, they won’t pay the going rate. There’s plenty Championship clubs who will, but if he has a good Euro’s he might even skip the Championship and go straight to a Premier League team... from their point of view a few million is worth the punt.

As long as the money is properly re-invested and we end up with a more balanced team next season, and we have more than two strikers on the books, I’ll be happy.

I think that's just because none of us have seen him the flesh.

I'd love to keep Nisbet for another season but I've kind of resigned myself to the fact he won't be here. So he might as well have a good Euros and make Hibs as much money as possible.

This is paper talk. Not like you to regurgitate unsubstantiated S*n, Rec*rd shite.

Completely agree with you!

Hibs fans want LG and celtc fans want Nisbet, the red tops want to sell papers!

I wonder if there has been any chat between the clubs at all. Probably not given all the meaningful vacancies at celtc park. Do they have a manager in place to identify or approve a player and do they have anyone in place authorised to negotiate contracts and sign multi million pound cheques?

I think Sparky only has one year left on his Celtc deal and it was only an option to extend?

I'd love that but sadly he would appear a laddie in a hurry....??
