New McGinn update Celtic to offer £2m plus mikey Johnson on loan. get lost with the loans.

Update on McGinn. I havn't posted for a few days as nothing new until now. As i reported earlier McGinn only wants to go to celtic. Makes it hard for hibs to negotiate as team McGinn aren't interested in going elsewhere. I am now more confident than ever that a deal will be done, ballpark £2mil and Allan on loan. Loan deal means no extra cash to st mirren. Hibs want celtic to pay st mirrens cut.

17 Jul 2018 09:46:02
Surely hibs have the say about where he goes if a bid of £3m came in I would take it contrary to what mcginn says after all hibs hold the contract? Just asking if this is the deal on the table I hope they refuse this is not the best deal for hibs imo.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jul 2018 12:08:16
Loan deal for Allen would mean we can sign a pre-contract with him in January. I’d take that.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jul 2018 14:56:19
It's the best deal hibs can get under the circumstances. If a player wants to go to specific club, he can. He hasn't handed in a transfer request so that strengthens the case that hibs do not have a say. Scenario is either he goes for £2mil + a loan player/ s now or walks away at the end of the season for nothing. McGinn was always bought by hibs to be developed and sold. Hibs cannot afford to let £2mil walk out the door. It isn't good business sense. Hibs could agree a transfer with another club, but if the player says he doesn't want to go there, he wont. As celtic need players, the deal needs to be done, hence why they are willing to deal now rather than wait until january. That gives a little power to hibs, but not much. Hibs want scott allan but celtic don't want to give him up as they see him as a sellable assett. If the deal was (from hibs view) £2mil + allan and johnston (who is a player hibs have just enquired about) on loan and celtic pay st mirrens cut, it would be done. Personally, with what i know now, i think the deal will be circa £2mil + youth loan player. Hibs will sign Allan in a seperate deal. All undisclosed fee.

Rumoured on Twitter that Mulumba ex Killie may be coming to Hibs. Would be good if true but seemingly original source "agent kevin" is unreliable.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

16 Jul 2018 10:40:44
Seen that rumour myself zafira but the source is highly suspect as you rightly stated. There would be no complaints from this Hibee is the move materialised Mulamba gave Kilmarnock an added dimension to their play last season and would be an excellent acquisition. Quality player and if Kilmarnock could agree a financial loan deal with West Brom for the boy then it wouldn't bankrupt the powers at be at Easter Road. Given the fact he's now got SPFL experience this would be a real coup if true but unfortunately can't see it coming to fruition. Fingers crossed though!

Anybody know what the problem with hibs and Murray is? I thought he was a good player.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

15 Jul 2018 18:35:11
As did I. But that’s why Lennon is manager, not us. Murray will be on a higher wage than Oli Shaw, don’t need both.

15 Jul 2018 23:05:58
Poor man's kamberi plays the same hustler role Shaw's a plan b heel go for a wee poacher again.

Agree1 Disagree0

16 Jul 2018 10:49:18
Lennon is the gaffer and has been excellent in every department to date but I do feel Murray can think himself unlucky. He started like a train last season but had a sticky spell which seen him being loaned out for game time unfortunately for him his replacements where sensational. Kamberi is superior and we should enjoy his exploits while we have him which I think will only be for this season. he is that good. Jamie McLaren possesses more of a predatory instinct but the Germans want to keep hold of him which may be the reprieve Simon Murray needs providing Hibs don't push him out the door. Shaw was always going to get a more prominent role this campaign and potentially could be a valuable asset if he can carry on his form.

Agree1 Disagree0

14 Jul 2018 18:00:50
Hearing Eoin Doyle and Richie Towell could both be returning to Easter Road with Lennon keen on both.

Can't see that but who knows!

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Jul 2018 13:08:19
Sounds unlikely. but from black pudding county contacts, Alex Neil has apparently said Doyle has no future at Preston (contract runs to June'19 but probably will be cancelled) . Oldham fairly keen again but not at his Preston salary.

Also, Daryl Horgan is being given chance in pre-season (as promised by Neil) so expect no movement on that before early August (played first 60 mins yesterday) .

Towell is going on loan somewhere (again), zero chance of a game at Brighton, again in last year of contract.

Dear tomo, look at the title rumour page, I got the rumour yesterday saying mcginn is going to Celtic. For £2.5 million and Briton on loan as well as SA, THE OTHER WEEK THERE I SAID I WOULD LIKE TO SEE GRIFF As part of a loan deal I also stated would like to see mcginn sign a new deal.

So every one would be happy. now ye first part is exactly what your saying apart from the biton roumor these are my opinions, which I'm allowed. I've not seen you come up with any truths or good Romford in the last few seasons.

As for going on Celtic page I've got a lot of friends that are Celtic so I think it's up to me what page I can go on so be a good lad try being part of the hibs family and look forward to a good season without slagging people off.

You've been caught ed, don't start acting all sanctimonious, apologise and we can move on. I'm an easy going guy and you know I don't hold grudges.

{Ed007's Note - Right let's break this down, the post wasn't on the Celtic page, it's on the Hibs Banter page, it was on the 10th of July not the 12th AND - now this is the important part so maybe read it slowly - I am Ed007 (SEVEN) the editor that answered your post was Ed001 (ONE). Believe it or not the eds have all different numbers so posters know which is which. I'll repeat that for you:

I AM Ed007 (SEVEN) - IT WAS Ed001 (ONE) THAT ANSWERED YOU ON THE 10th ON HIBS BANTER PAGE (NOT ON THE CELTIC PAGE).

The post's still there (10 Jul 2018 15:41:11) for you to go and look - and everyone else too so they can laugh at you for making a massive ar$e of yourself.
Now, where's my apology..... and like I said, it BETTER be good....

Only a complete zoomer would fail to realise that we are two different people.}

14 Jul 2018 17:59:00
Some of these "rumours" are getting silly. I mean why would Celtic give us Griffiths on loan? The very idea is nuts! Then there's Scott Allan who's more likely to be moved on rather than loaned out. How long has he left on his Celtic contract anyway? That leaves Hibs with no chance of paying his wage demands. As for Celtics offer for John? It now seems obvious they are willing to wait and get him on a pre contract. 4m or nowt? A no brainer if JohnS told them he wants to pull on the Celtic shirt.

Back in 2017 Stubbs had a note of interest from Spurs.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

09 Jul 2018 18:19:36
I have just heard a rumour from someone with some strong links to Hibernian ( ex player) He says that Petrie has been talking with Tottenham for some months now with a view to getting some tie up with them after they approached both us and I believe Motherwell. I would not think that Tottenham will be interested in any of the Hibs squad just now but they will have 1st refusal in future should we ever sell. This what got my attention though. I was told that Tottenham would loan us Harry Winks for 1 season instead of paying us a fee. I have no idea if this info is pie in sky or something in it as I said it all comes from a ex player. This is my opinion now but it sounds good and makes sense and would explain why not many new signings been made yet. Maybe we waiting to announce this. If we got Winks and a few promising youngsters it would be excellent and I think we would be number 1 draw for any Scottish youngster . Join Hibs and have prospect of joining Tottenham in future if you do well ( for a fee! )

According to Parker loan deal for Daryl Horgan could be completed in time for Thursday's Europa game. Hopefully this will be the case as Lennon's recruitment has been top notch to date and the boy has a few caps to his name. I wouldn't be surprised also if we re-new our interest in Ali Crawford after the other mob have refused to offer him a deal. I think we should overlook this fact and at least take a proper look at him, plenty of SPFL experience and a free agent. Surely worth bringing him in on trial.

Your right h1 Rodgers gave him away for £150K He's made a few boobs in the transfer market. MUSSONDA, EBOUIE, HAYES, GMS, THE KEEPER HE BROUGHT IN TO REPLACE GORDON PLUS HENDO. If we get Allan on the cheap that will be another error. Certainly not infallible!

That's Rodgers saying he expects the McGinn deal to go thru in the next few days. They must have a deadline for the CL anything around £2.5Mill ( £3Mill would be grea ) and SA will do for me. I've read that LD is prepared to go to £600K for McLaren, which is all well and good, but the wages might be a problem.

Believable2 Unbelievable0

07 Jul 2018 14:45:33
I agreed with you yesterday Big L and now Rodgers has more or less publicly declared McGinn will be a Celtic player very soon (before Euro deadline) with Allan heading in our direction. Makes perfect sense for both clubs and the players providing we get some decent coin to fund our other primary targets namely McLaren as you stated.

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Jul 2018 15:29:53
A mid field 3 of slivka Allan and Mallan appeals to me, I'm not saying they are better than McGinn and McGeough but I think their are more goals in them. I would like to see McLaren arrive but I'm not that bothered because I think this could be a big season for Oli Shaw.

Agree1 Disagree0

06 Jul 2018 21:39:42
Stevie Mallan will be a really good signing for us, but I don't think he is a direct replacement for McGinn should he go. I think he will play the McGeough or possibly the Scott Allan role, that's if Celtic price him to high for us. Which leaves us light in mid field. A great signing tho, I remember his 25yrd free kick over the wall to beat Marciano. Nice to have a free kick expert, csn't remember the last one.

Short memories - surely Griffiths and (to lesser extent) Cummings took a mean free kick.

Agree1 Disagree0

06 Jul 2018 23:08:41
Completely agree Big L, Mallan will prove to be a great bit of business. Lennon has targeted him since taking over at ER such is his admiration for the boy, hence the four year deal. Completely different player to SJM, very similar type to Scott Allan but they are good enough to be able to play in the same side if we can secure the latter. With SJM likely to move to Celtic with SA being part of the deal I wouldn't be surprised if this meant more game time for Bartley or Whittaker in the defensive midfield area allowing Mallan and Allan to try and unlock the opposition's defence. I expect Slivka to be more prominent this season in the starting line-up after Dylan's departure. It wouldn't shock me if Mallan eclipses Dylan!

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jul 2018 23:26:00
The two mentioned scored a handful between them, great players tho they were. The player I liked the most in that era was wee Latapy, what a touch. What a football brain. You have to wonder how much he would be worth at todays transfer levels. He was absolutely immense in the 6-2 humbling of the great unwashed. I was trying to work it out, they must have a squad of 34 players call the administrators, again!

06 Jul 2018 23:21:48
I'd love to see McGinn strutting his stuff in the English top flight but can't see anything other than a transfer to Celtic being confirmed before their Euro deadline. Our interest in Scott Allan is not exactly a secret and providing both clubs can find a compromise financially it makes perfect sense. If Celtic loosen their purse strings to around 2m plus Scott Allan I think it would be folly to reject the offer despite St Mirren receiving a percentage. Other than losing Dylan for nothing the board have been shrewd for many a year and I suspect we're holding out for a possible other loanee (hopefully Hayes) to sweeten the deal. However I'm slightly nervous we may lose out on Scotty Allan if we play with fire for too long!

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2018 12:43:37

03 Jul 2018 09:00:18
McGinn update. There is a will by all 3 sides to get the deal done. The £1.5mil reported is the starting point. weeks ago this was submitted. Hibs need to get a deal done as he isn't going to sign an extension, so can't loose him for nothing next year. The money is too good to turn down and financially they cant. When Hibs signed McGinn it cost almost £500k with agent fees/ sign on etc so can't afford to let him run his contract down.
Celtic want McGinn but don't want to pay what Hibs think he's worth so will offer no more than £2mil. Cash + player is an option but Hibs must pay St Mirren 30% of the deal. So if Hibs get a player valued at £500k they must pay 30% of that too ontop of 30% of any cash. Also issues with sell on clauses.
McGinn isn't going to sign a new deal with Hibs but wants Hibs and St Mirren both to benefit from his sale. There are other higher bids (not official yet) but they go for nothing as the player wants a move to Celtic.
The deal will get done but will require a bit of give from both clubs. Hibs want Allan but that will probably be a seperate deal. don't be surprised to see an undisclosed fee when Mcginn is confirmed. Just like when Cummings signed for Notts Forest for £500k.

McGinn will got to celtic but I've heard the total fee including paymenot to st midden will be nearer £2m but that's what I've heard who knows.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2018 07:51:45
McGinn cost hibs 150 k from st Mirren with a 33% sell on clause of any future move and a further 10% of any moves after that, this is causing problems with Celtic and they are wanting contract re -written, meaning they would have to compensate st Mirren now. the biggest winners here are undoubtedly st Mirren.

Agree1 Disagree1

04 Jul 2018 10:41:02
Having a player of Johns quality at Hibs for 4 seasons. I’d say we have done well having him. Anything we get for him is a bonus.

Agree1 Disagree0

04 Jul 2018 10:43:22
Hibs had to pay nearly £500k to sign McGinn as i said in my earlier post. Transfer fee, agent fees, 'exclusive rights fee', sign on fee, admin fee, legal fee, expense fees etc. Signing a player isn't just the transfer fee. How do you think Hibs signed McGinn? Its because the package for him and his agent was excellent. Trust me i know.
As for the 10% from another sell on, that's not worth the paper its written on if it is even written. Who pays the 10%? The selling or buying club? St Mirren (1) don't know who Hibs (2) are going to sell him to (3) nor do they know the other team (4) who want to buy him. So 1 having a contract between 3 and 4 is very difficult if you don't know who they are and don't own the player. If there was a legally enforcable 10% then this would potentially mean 3rd party ownership which i highly doubt is involved. Perhaps in £multi million deals.
The only thing holding this up is valuation figures. Like in every walk of life, if the money is right you do the deal.

Agree1 Disagree0

04 Jul 2018 13:09:53
Tbf. I've never heard of that type of transfer, however, in my mind McGinn's away and it's just a case of who or what we get for him. I would prefer players because they have some quality sitting on the sidelines. Christie and Allan would be my 1st pick. Theirs a rumour they are trying to push Ralston on us bu the lad divides opinion.

Best case scenario for Hibs is to get £2mil and Scott Allan on loan (sign him on precontract in jan) or Celtic pay up his contract in knowledge he is signing for Hibs. This way Hibs don't have to pay the 30% of his value to St Mirren. It means Celtic writing off a sellable asset but it may be worth it if they want the McGinn deal done asap. What Celtic want is to sign McGinn for as little as possible and no player swap. As i said. its all about the £ numbers and both sides giving a little.

The on loan deal is the best way to avoid squabbles over how much SA is worth. As you say, McGinn cost almost £500K, is St Mirr''s 30% based on the total transfer fee or is it based on profit of sake after the £500K is deducted?

30% of the total transfer. For example if Hibs were to swap McGinn for a player/ players (no cash) then St Mirren would be aggrieved and put in a complaint, most likely resulting in a valuation for the transfer. This would then have to be paid to St Mirren. i'm certain that it would be the same with a cash/ player deal. This is just one of the many scenarios, and why deals seem like they take ages! If its £2mil and Allan loan then £600k (approx) to St Mirren. If its £2mil and Allan then £750k (approx) to St Mirren. On flip side it means effectively Hibs sign Allan for £150k. Hibs may decide that's a better option, although they pay out more Allan is a player Hibs want.

St Mirren get 30% of the transfer when Hibs sell him (no deduction of Hibs previous deal with them), for the avoidance of doubt.

Offered around £1.5 Mill. Cheeky gits, hang on to him for a yr or 2 and sell him to the stupid English for £8Mill. As for Kierney, your not going to tell me that's he's worth 20 times as much McGinn.

Rumour Sheffield Wed have offered for McGinn and have offered cash plus a striker on loan, Fletcher/ Hooper. Rumour Rodgers is prepared to give SA pre season to prove himself. Not good if true.

Fletcher/ hooper both on 25/ 30k a week how does that work?

Would like to see how much money they will offer if it's only a player on loan would have to be the full £3m.

To answer your question Tomo, I would imagine their wages would lead to a reduced lump sum to Hibs. Their are rumours all over the place, some saying McGinn definitely not going to Celtic others saying he is. The offer I heard was £2.7Mill plus SA and Lewis Morgan for 6 months. I know their was an enquiry for Hooper and that Lenny would love to get him. I just wish something would break, 2 weeks to the Euro game.
