I don' think Campbell is realistic tbh....Magennis is though.

Ross has worked with him before and rates him highly.

Things will move as we get near to the end of the window. All depends on the player and his agent. If he is dead keen to go to Hibs it will happen eventually. Probably on the last day of the window. St Mirren will eventually accept a bid, especially in the current climate.

Get what your saying but would we want to risk going to the last day and end up with nothing .
I think now the agents and clubs are using the media to get better offers .

£200k seems to be the magic number nowadays. Sure everyone we've been linked with has been at that figure.

Motherwell have offered Campbell a contract as well, guarantees them compensation when he leaves. I think its possible. Depends who else is already interested.
Can see Celtic and plenty others walking in if the rumoured 200k is accepted.

If we offer 200k the Huns or an English team will offer 500k and that'll be that, no chance we're winning a bidding war with the amount of interest Campbell will attract if he's available in my opinion. I'd say he's worth more than that from what I've seen of him, if he wasn't out of contract at the end of this season I'd wager he'd go for at least treble that

As always I'm happy to be proven wrong, especially in this case

They won't need to offer more, just more wages.
We could be doing the groundwork for others to step in.
Thats the risk though.

English clubs in the lower leagurs cant blow us out thr water anymore either, which is good.

I’m not sure the interest in Campbell is as high as people think. Given his contract status, the old firm would have deployed their usual media tactics by now if they were interested. There also hasn’t been the usual interview with the player about wanting to play in England, so suggests his agent isn’t pushing him in that direction.

Not saying he’ll end up at Hibs, but there’s an opportunity depending on how much Motherwell want for him. Problem is they’ve received good fees for Scott & Turnbull in the last 12 months or so, putting them in a better position than many.

They can also keep him for the season when there’s no urgency to cash in with Turnbull money in the bank. The development fee they’d be due for someone there 10yr plus is far more than (that gospel figure of) 200k!!

If we want Campbell we will need to bid 500K+.

Come on Ron you know it makes sense, offer them either Mallan or Hallberg as part of the deal. I really don’t get the Kyle Magennis hype he is prone to injury and is out injured currently so why are wasting money on someone that isn’t going to be match fit and ready to start.

He is out injured at the moment and seems to be injury prone these days so why are we wasting money on him when we could get a better player who isn’t injured and not injury prone, this makes no sense at all and it won’t look good for our recruitment either.

I mean you don’t sign a player for five games, these kind of players are long term punts with the hope they have 2/3 good seasons and we can sell them on for a decent fee. Not sure how it is possible to say it wouldn’t look good for our recruitment, until at least 6 months to a season later.

We obviously want to strengthen our midfield, although buying a player who is currently injured makes no sense, if we want to improve we need players who can come straight in and make the difference.

Hes only had 1 actual injury ?‍♂️ and in 4 seasons he's played 105 games.
Not too shabby.

So? I judge Hibs players on Hibs games. Don't like everyone coming in but they get their chance. Hes like 20 year old or something, big lad, potential, we should be looking at players like that, that's where we make extra money.

It doesn't matter either way, bids rejected, moving on.
Just killing this injury prone story before it becomes fact.
