Martin Boyle is wanted again by Hibs who are in “dialogue” with his Saudi club over bringing him back to Leith.
The deal seems to have stalled after this contact being made 2 days ago and still no move, the BBC website has just published the following whereby the deal is termed as both complex and will take a big investment to land him back.
On the latter it may mean Hibs being priced out of bringing him back, if the Saudi’s want their money back it would be around £3 million, this is next to nothing for Celtic for a player of such quality.
As printed on the BBC:
“We’ve got dialogue with four or five at the moment in various positions because we’re still active in the market.
“Of course, we’d love to bring Martin here.
It won’t be cheap. It would have to take a big investment from the ownership.
We need an addition in the position, there’s no doubting that.
“Most deals are complex.
I think what the club’s done is put themselves in a position that if Martin ever becomes available, we’re at the front of the queue.
“The club have got to want to move him on and at the moment, we just don’t know the full facts on that matter.”
This is very indecisive, should Celtic pounce with Champions League football and an opportunity to play alongside Australian teammate Aaron Mooy with the World Cup coming up, we would add an attacking player who would be the long term replacement for James Forrest.
There are few if any in the market available at his price and with his experience in Scotland who would fit so seamlessly into the team.
