    Why on earth are these kind of stories even printed at this point?

    The window doesnt open for weeks...............

    and, agree the poster above - we need him more than we need £1.5m at the moment

    Eh, itís The Sun?

    The only surprising thing about it is that itís not Rangers heís linked with, given we play them this week.

    I donít think £1.5m with some really good add ons is as ridiculous as some are suggesting. I think we will get a bit more but itíll be that ball park.

    Fwiw I can see a lot of huge clubs being linked with him but then him going to a smaller one where he has a chance of game time. Similar to Hickey going to Bologna when there was talk of him going to Bayern and AC Milan.

    Heís had a taste of first team football now, does he really want to go back to playing development football for a huge club?

    I think you're right to be honest. What I would like to see is him coming back to us on loan for another season so he can continue to develop. How many times have we seen young scottish players go down south and then reappear years later with it not having worked. He needs a bit more time playing week in week out first team football

    The Sun are often very accurate with Hibs stories.

    If he's linked with Rangers before the weekend (and it wouldn't surprise me) it is more likely to be in the Daily Record.

    I don't think it's ridiculous either.

    He's not even 19 yet and hasn't even reached 30 appearances for us.

    History tells you that's not too far away from what young Scottish players often sell for. There's similarities there with Aaron Hickey and it's believed he was sold for roughly that amount.

    We may get around £2 million for him just now but I would be surprised if it was much more than that.

    perhaps, but recent history would suggest that we would be unlikely to be interested in selling at that price. He has a full season of games behind him, and every chance of a decent amount of European football ahead of him. Hibs are far more likely to turn down offers for him at the end of the season and in a years time, if he is still improving and has successfully played European football, heíll be worth 4-6m. Hibs have no reason to sell at all.

    Heís also not played in front of any fans yet.

    First of all, has that maybe helped him relax? How will he cope in front of thousands of fans? Might skoosh it but the pressure could get to him, nobody knows yet.

    Secondly, heís just had a season playing in front of no fans, Iím sure now heís got a taste of first team football heíll be desperate to play in front of big crowds next season. Joining a Leicester or Man City Iíd say heís got no chance.

    In a completely random made up guess I could see him going to someone like Norwich, Swansea, West Brom...... someone around that sort of level where heíd get a good pay rise, high profile but also have a chance if first team football.

    Think he needs another couple of seasons with us. Seems to have his head screwed on and won't move yet. Very young to be be moving to another country and culture.

    Another culture is maybe stretching it a bit, no? 😀

    He may also get one opportunity at getting a move like this. You never know whatís round the corner.

    Heíd be better served staying with us for a couple of years and moving on after 60+ games, as would we.

    Quite surprised some on here would accept £1.5m when the lads just signed a new contract. That would be mental.

    Iíve said this repeatedly but we need to start overvaluing our assets because teams down south will pay it.

    Really?

    I suspect in the future he will have plenty of opportunities for a move like this one, except they will be real opportunities, rather than just daft paper talk several months before the transfer window opens.

    Restricting my take on Doig to reality, I predict he wonít be going anywhere, especially not for £1.5 million. Heís going to be at Hibs for at least another season.

    Would we get enough from Doig, Nisbet, and Porteous to fill in a corner or 2?

    One more season would be great. But he has everything that top clubs are looking for right now.

    Think we should be saying to any potential suitors that the minimum sell on fee we'll accept is 25% of all future transfer revenue and then open a bidding war for the fee after that.

    He's a talented laddie and is going to go a long way in the game, if he is going to leave then Leicester (with a potential loan back to us next season) would be a great move. A really good, well run team.

    Was Hickey not in the final year of his contract?

    Doug has much longer left and we should be holding out for much more. British players will demand a premium now with work permits required following Brexit. A lot of these clubs are signing potential rather than the finished article. Physically he fits the bill as well.

    I think we should hold out for a lot more with add ons.

    Window does not matter. Its a registration window. He could sign for them to tomorrow but he'd remain at hibs until they could register him in summer.

    He's our first choice left back at 18. The boy is a major talent. We shouldn't be accepting 1.5 million from an EPL club. Especially when he has four years left on his contract. I expect us to sell him but considering we just turned down 3 million for Nisbet the bar has been set. There should also be a huge add on of future transfers. Look at how Andy Robertson and Tierney have flourished down there. Hibs should be using those examples.

    Looks like the Premiership clubs are all looking to the Scottish market for their own Tierney or Robertson!

    And so it begins. A transfer rumour about one of our players makes the papers and Hibs fans queue up to finalise the deal.

    Let the lad play. Heís just starting out.

    We all know by now that Hibs is a good place for young players to develop, and if they donít rush it they can earn a very good move.

    I hope and expect Josh to be our player next season.

    I still think we missed a huge opportunity to get £3m for Nisbet.
