    He's going there; we all know it. Scunnered, but it's no surprise.

    Not unless we get the right money for him. They can stick that £1.5 back where it came from and tell them to come back with a real offer

    Reports suggesting 1.5m with no players offered in return.
    Absolutely insulting but par for the course with "Buy-Every-Decent-Player-In-The-League-Then-Moan-About-Lack-Of-Competition FC".

    On BBC Scotland sports web page also. I think itís inevitable heíll go just need to make sure we get a decent deal.
    Good luck to him, for me has been the model professional over the last 18mths during all the transfer speculation, never once suggested to the media he was keen to move on.

    Heard premiership teams sniffing so if thats the case i would knock it back as well,Celtic just got £7million for a lesser player in Armstrong so show us your money and were not talking about loose change

    Letís be honest. Weíll accept 2/2.5m for him with Allan included in the deal. We arenít in a position to be turning that down at this stage. McGinn will want to go there. We want Allan. 2.5m is good money and letís us get others in to improve the squad. Oh and itíll help Leeann build that full size indoor pitch she was on about.

    Absolutely, but an agreement will be reached at some point. They usually get the players they want up here. We need to negotiate for top dollar.

    They can ram it. Even with a year left we should get £3m+ and a decent sell on %.

    We'd rip their hand off for that.

    I hope Dempster, Lennon and Petrie have enough balls between them to turn down every offer below the true valuation. If they donít make a realistic offer, which they wonít till the last minute, I hope we get a few good offers from England. If they have to tell McGinn that heís going nowhere, tough.

    I'm pretty sure they will come back with another offer, this is where we find out if there are other clubs interested in McGinn, Celtc testing the water here with that bid, no other offers come in in for him and Celtc will up that price by a few hundred grand and will probably get the player.

    I really hope the English clubs start entering and start a bidding war.

    The Hibs board have proven over the last decade or so that they will ensure they get fair value for players we have sold. Whatever the deal the club agree to I am sure it will be the best deal they can get - whether that be payment terms, sell on fees or players included in the deal.

    I think if a concrete bid has been made it will hopefully encourage teams down south to put in concrete bids but think it also puts paid to any minuscule chance there was of McGinn signing an extension to get another year out of him and a bigger transfer fee but he has served us well and even if he goes along m8 it wont tarnish his contribution to Hibs in my eyes.

    11.5m ...If they move the decimal point Hibs should consider it, he's better than Armstrong imo.

    I have confidence in our board to get the maximum money for SJM. If our club does not get a good deal then we should let SJM stay until his contract ends.

    Armstrong went for more because he was playing for celtic. Thats just how it works. He's going 100% just a case of what players we get in return. I think people are miles off it thinking we will also get £2m+ for him.

    I agree. Apart from the obvious in Allan, have you heard what other players could head our way?

    Agree and we cannot run the risk of losing him for nothing in 6 to 12 months.

    I think the club would be prepared to risk that unless a suitable bid comes in. When Leeann was asked about his value a couple of weeks ago she said that his value was on the pitch.

    We could bank a fee for McGinn which is less than we want or keep him and earn money through success on the pitch. Having the likes of him gives you a better chance of progressing in Europe, cups and finishing higher up the league.

    I absolutely think he will be sold. But Iím confident the club will get a better deal than many would expect and the thought of him running his contract down wonít be in their thinking too much.

    No but he could sign a pre contract and force his way out for a pittance. And no Scott Allan.

    1.5m is brutal. What's the point of even bidding that?

    One would imagine to negotiate as low a price as possible. I'm assuming we will adopt the same approach for MacLaren etc.
