Hibs got Croatian striker Ivan lendric on trial at Easter road.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 Jul 2018 19:31:30
1 good year, kicked out of everywhere else.

24 Jul 2018 19:43:59
Big Croatian seems to be trouble?

25 Jul 2018 11:25:13
Don't know much about him other than he's been around the block as his record suggests. However Lennon has been proven to unearth a diamond needing polished before ie Kamberi so I'll reserve judgement. With Simon Murray departing we're certainly light up top with Kamberi and Shaw our only two recognised first team strikers and I can't imagine we'll shell out for two top level strikers so I reckon Lendric might be an option from the bench as opposed to McLaren. Lennon has stated he hasn't given up hope on that deal and teaming up again with his new best bud Flo would be everyone's preferred pairing.

25 Jul 2018 11:28:15
I'm sure Lennon won't take any trouble.

22 Jul 2018 16:31:58
Anyone know if we are still in for McLaren?

Agree2 Disagree0

22 Jul 2018 22:45:22
As far as I know it's dead in the water as his team want to keep him .

23 Jul 2018 08:36:59
He got 30mins for Darmstadt in yesterday friendly vs Huddersfield.

24 Jul 2018 10:43:57
Thanks for the replies. That's a shame he did a decent job last season. I know we are getting goals from all over the team but with Murray being sold I think we need at least one more forward. I heard we were interested in Adam Le Fondre any know of any other possible targets?

21 Jul 2018 17:18:02
Hibs hoping to sign 21 year old winger Thomas Agyepong fae Man City on loan.

Agree4 Disagree0

21 Jul 2018 21:21:27
Would take that anytime.

24 Jul 2018 10:37:09
Supposedly this deal is quite far down the line providing Agyepong can prove his fitness which raised a couple of concerns.

20 Jul 2018 18:38:49
300k get out clause for effe? 228k Europe progression 150k for Murray another 678k in the coffers of the biggest ever transfer budget a managers ever had? SPEND SOME!

Agree3 Disagree2

21 Jul 2018 12:47:11
Aberdeen snuffing around Louis moult surely we’re a better prospect.

23 Jul 2018 23:27:39
Get him onboardnow would be a loan then minimun transfer if agreed upfront like Kambere.

24 Jul 2018 10:29:18
I'd give Eoin Doyle a wee shout.

24 Jul 2018 10:35:27
After the success of the Kamberi I expect Hibs will be trying to put similar type deals together at every opportunity. Just a pity we didn't have that in place for McLaren or he'd already be back at Easter Road. I read somewhere they're looking for around 600k which I can't see us shelling out on any player as an upfront fee in the current marketplace.

24 Jul 2018 19:08:35
Eoin too expensive for Aberdeen. zero chance our biscuit tin (unless Preston pay him out in full for last year of contract)

19 Jul 2018 21:56:41
Well done the mighty we need another couple in defence was poor midfield looks strong and forwards look like they link well but would still like to see a forward and another defender .

Agree1 Disagree0

19 Jul 2018 22:58:08
Defence was garbage our midfield struggled over 2 legs to dominate a part-time midfield who played with 10 men for almost half a game take Mallans goals away and nothing? Lose McGinn? Nothing in midfield? Big flo badly needs help. Early doors match and physical fitness bad 2 nyt is as bad a performance from start to finish I’ve witnessed in a long long time.

20 Jul 2018 09:59:03
Tommo I couldn’t agree more however I’m hoping we’re still in pre season mode. I remember Mallan very well from his St Mirren days and he was always class at going forward but offered nothing in helping out defensively that’s partly the reason I thought he was a decent signing as I thought big marv would cover that roll. The bottom line is we can’t lose two of Scotland’s best midfielders and not replace them with quality that’s just asking for trouble. Is sir David injury free now? Is McGregor injury free for the start of the season. If not we could be in trouble without strengthening the defence and midfield. Don’t think Lois moult done much at Preston could be worth a punt.

20 Jul 2018 11:08:37
Louis Moult played part of Preston's first 3 pre-season games (105 mins, scored once), so like Horgan Alex Neil is giving him fair pre-season chance

Not at all sure about this new rumour about Adam le Fondre - scores goals everywhere but.

17 Jul 2018 21:08:00
New McGinn update Celtic to offer £2m plus mikey Johnson on loan. get lost with the loans.

Agree2 Disagree0

19 Jul 2018 15:29:02
Unless it’s Scott Allan.

17 Jul 2018 03:43:16
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.

Agree1 Disagree0

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.

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.

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.

17 Jul 2018 15:18:03
Geko I’m just going to say well said, but I don’t really no what for as I fell 😴 asleep half way through your post! You do go on a bit? 😂# mr obviously.

17 Jul 2018 17:14:58
No problem, i will end it there. Just being thorough for avoidance of doubt. Its easier for me to post once with all info i know. I shall leave it there.

17 Jul 2018 21:26:33
Thanks for that geko ye see what your saying and Ye would except that deal tomo you sure your a hibby mate your fast to criticise the family mate.

17 Jul 2018 21:27:45
Thanks gecko for the info tomo keeps slating the hibs family.

18 Jul 2018 03:40:04
Although i know many and hibs are a club to be admired for going in the right direction, no i'm not a hibs fan. I just thought i would share what i know. As i said, i'll leave it at that.

16 Jul 2018 09:35:31
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.

Agree1 Disagree0

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!

14 Jul 2018 22:42:12
Anybody know what the problem with hibs and Murray is? I thought he was a good player.

Agree0 Disagree0

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.

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.

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

Agree0 Disagree4

14 Jul 2018 22:43:29
Can't see that but who knows!

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.

14 Jul 2018 15:55:04
Simon Murray on his travels again South Africa is his location.

Agree2 Disagree0

14 Jul 2018 17:52:37
On holiday?

13 Jul 2018 14:39:20
Big L come back and bring some sense to the proceedings I can't cope all alone with so many lies on a rumours thread!

{Ed007's Note - He's not banned btw, if you ever read the Celtic pages you'd see that I'm a sarky git and yesterday was mostly done tongue in cheek.}

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jul 2018 16:07:55
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.

13 Jul 2018 19:18:00
You hit it on the head it’s a rumours page
And I think if you look 👀 back not long ago I named my source gogs Rae saying Stevie Mallan was coming, you said that you were told now it’s you’re opinion?

14 Jul 2018 12:28:35
I was told about McGin going to Celtic and getting biton and sa yes but the rest was my opinion.

14 Jul 2018 15:59:43
Just heard Simon Murray on his way to South Africa.

12 Jul 2018 22:29:55
Mcginn signed for Celtic for undisclosed fee heard in region of £2.5m plus Scott Allan and also biton on loan.

Agree0 Disagree2

13 Jul 2018 00:35:19
12 Jul 2018 11:52:14
Won't happen mcginn willing to sign another year just to get hibs and st midden there money hibs want £3m plus SA and a year loan of griff but think it will end in £2.5 m and sa.
(Posted on Celtic Rumours)
How many rumours do you want to make up?

13 Jul 2018 12:41:09
Tomo, I posted what I was told last night from a very good source, and what I've said is very close to what your saying but let's wait and see by Monday.

13 Jul 2018 13:00:26
Hibs are now saying they want £4m.

13 Jul 2018 14:11:39
Well hibsboy let's sum up what you’ve bn told McGinn is away and Scott Alan biton Griffiths all coming the other way while McGinn foxes them all by signing a year extension while the UNDISCLOSED FEE (UNDISCLOSED MIND? )
Is 2.5m? Stick to the Celtic rumours thread please.

12 Jul 2018 19:40:58
Don't know how true but just been told that McGinn is in talks tonight with Celtic and could be presented tomorrow or Monday not sure of fees or anything but when I hear I will let you know!

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jul 2018 20:22:39
Not even on the bench tonight.

12 Jul 2018 22:32:51
Done mate Celtic for undisclosed fee Scott Allan and biton on loan.

11 Jul 2018 14:27:45
Another grotty offer from the parasites at parkhead has been rejected. Lennon says he doen't what Hibs value McGinn at!

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Jul 2018 15:53:20
Surley if there’s money and a player coming the other way lennon has to no what mcginns price tag is? Very strange if he dosnt!

11 Jul 2018 15:59:38
Quoted as saying he doesn't know what the boards ptics is. I know this much, if these offers had come in from the new rangers, Lennon would have had plenty to say!

12 Jul 2018 11:16:38
Are you the same editor that posted on Celtic rumours that McGinn has made it clear to Hibs and Celtic that he will only sign for Celtic?

{Ed007's Note - Yes that's me.}

12 Jul 2018 11:20:08
You also stated that he has told Hibs not to bother accepting bids from other clubs because they would be wasting their time.

{Ed007's Note - I know, it was me that wrote it.}

12 Jul 2018 11:30:35
Come on! Maybe start with an apology for being a two faced git!

{Ed007's Note - Me? I've absolutely no idea what you're dribbling about. And watch your tongue, I'm not sitting here giving my time for free to take abuse because you don't like what I say.}

12 Jul 2018 11:41:45
You called me out for saying exactly what you stated on the 12th on Celtic rumours, that's two faced and if you had any decency you would apologise!

{Ed007's Note - The 12th's today. Go and find the exact time stamp of the post and I'll have a look, in fact just cut and paste the post and my answer but I think it's going to be you that will need to apologise.... and it better be a damn good one or I'll ban & block you for abusing an editor :)

12 Jul 2018 11:49:12
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:


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....
Unfortunately for other people I'm not an easy going guy and I do hold grudges.
Ed007(SEVEN) not Ed001 (ONE)

12 Jul 2018 12:17:57
Your one and the same.

{Ed007's Note - Behave yourself and don't make yourself look an even bigger tit.}

12 Jul 2018 17:51:45
Why did you hold you hands up ed to the first to questions Big L asked then went into total denial? I may have missed the point please enlighten me.

{Ed007's Note - He asked me about something that I wrote today on the Celtic page. He then went on his mental rant about something I had no idea about and it turns out that it was Ed001 that answered him on the Hibs Banter page the other day and it had absolutely nothing at all to do with me.
Only a complete zoomer would fail to realise that we are two different people.}

13 Jul 2018 00:21:26
Well I hope BIG L and yourself kiss and make up as IMO BIG L brings a bit of common sense &undouted hibs knowledge to this thread and would be sorely missed
Cum on BIG L?

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.

10 Jul 2018 16:31:55
Aima Skäatman At east mains proving fitness in closed door game with possible medical to follow.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Jul 2018 16:57:58
So is Bohe Mianrhapsody and Dan Cingqueen.

{Ed007's Note - I can't believe I never noticed that! Kn0B! :)

11 Jul 2018 13:58:08
Come on! Wakey wakey ed 😂😂😂.

{Ed007's Note - Keep it to yourself but I was actually sitting wondering how to pronounce it and it STILL didn't click! This tropical weather (and old age according to Ed001) must be getting to me. :)

09 Jul 2018 20:19:35
Back in 2017 Stubbs had a note of interest from Spurs.

Agree0 Disagree0

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! )

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Jul 2018 18:42:27
Loan us winks and don’t pay us? Don’t understand?
Anyway winks would have bn in Russia with England squad if he hadn’t had ankle problems, then surgery in May, moving to Hibernian for a year would surley be a step in the wrong direction? Ex player told you? Mmmm has billy liar play for hibs?

09 Jul 2018 20:21:47
Check this scotsman article out:


09 Jul 2018 00:57:11
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.

Agree1 Disagree1

09 Jul 2018 15:24:13
I think last Friday was the last day for registering players for this round.

{Ed007's Note - During qualifiers and play-offs clubs can make two wildcard signings up until midnight going into the day of the first leg, so that's midnight Wednesday for you guys.}

07 Jul 2018 15:51:09
Liam Henderson training with hibs.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jul 2018 16:42:01
Not with a view to moving here though. Potential 2 mill transfer to another Italian club.

07 Jul 2018 17:15:13
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!

08 Jul 2018 11:40:17
The says he is weighting up his options.

09 Jul 2018 13:02:51
Didn't Deila sign Scott Allan?

07 Jul 2018 12:11:03
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.

Agree2 Disagree0

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.

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.

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.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jul 2018 22:04:11

06 Jul 2018 22:18:18
Yes Big L you can remember the last free kick expert we had. Big Frank Sauzee.

06 Jul 2018 23:00:31
Short memories - surely Griffiths and (to lesser extent) Cummings took a mean free kick.

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!

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!

07 Jul 2018 10:43:13
Agreed big L.

06 Jul 2018 09:10:07
I would love to know how everyone can come up with the assumptions McGinn is talking to Fulham. On a flight to London. I can't see anything anywere.

Agree1 Disagree0

06 Jul 2018 10:41:50
Its all went very quiet on John McGinn.

06 Jul 2018 19:33:09
My info came from a site with a membership of 8,000 Hibs fans ckhfc, just passing it on to Hibs fans that I think might be interested OK?

04 Jul 2018 22:25:43
McGinn talking to all interested parties seemingly down in London speaking with Fulham representatives at moment.

Agree1 Disagree1

04 Jul 2018 23:06:34
As long as they pay at least £3m not fussy who he goes to except the Huns.

05 Jul 2018 08:04:25
McDonald, Cairney, Johansen and then McGinn. almost worth a punt on them staying up (if it happens)

05 Jul 2018 08:13:52
Although not if Boyata goes there.!

05 Jul 2018 10:32:06
I think Fulham would be a great move for McGinn if it goes thru.

05 Jul 2018 18:40:24
McGinn reportedly at Edinburgh airport this afternoon, took flight to London.

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!

04 Jul 2018 12:43:37
Leigh Griffiths spotted at East Mains this morning. Is he coming back on loan, SJM along mate with Scott Allen swap. Hopefully get £2 million. Kamberi and Griffiths up front there's a partnership to take on new season!
