To some extent, it's probably in each club's interest to leave it to the last minute. Hibs will save a few grand in wages for a couple of weeks and Celtic will use the time to seek out a better deal with another club (that is if Commons is interested ). One club will lose out. We will have lost our man or Celtic will have lost contribution to Commons' wages. One thing is almost certain ............. Commons won't be at Parkhead, twiddling his thumbs for the rest of the season.
At the moment he strolls about in a Hibs side which is way better than all the other teams in the league.
Even better others do his running and he scores a goal here and there and sets up a few for others.
Kris is happy and the Hibees are happy.
A strolling Kris in a struggling Blackburn side would not be good for either party.
Commons to Hibs a few days before the next league game. Hibs pay Celtic £4K per week. Everyone happy again
Really, no chance Hibs will be paying anything near that.
