Hibernian coach Jack Ross revealed that defender Josh Doig is set to leave the club in the coming weeks. The young defender was left out of the squad for their opener against Motherwell. He has been linked with a move to Chelsea or Arsenal in the Premier League and Celtic in the Scottish League.
“My understanding is that it is highly likely Josh will move from the club.” jack ross said about Josh Doig leaving Hibernian. “We have to prepare for that eventuality – it looks like that will happen soon. There has been strong interest, that I think the club are trying to finalize this week, one way or another.”
“I don’t think it has been a brilliant situation for Josh – he is a young man who has only just turned 19 years old and it’s a lot to deal with,” he added. “I think for us and him it is better if we draw it to a conclusion, one way or another. Obviously, I would be delighted if he was still part of our club but it looks most likely he will move on. For me, as a manager, you would like that to have been dealt with earlier – but we are fortunate to have another excellent left-back in our squad in Lewis Stevenson.”
Doig made his debut at the start of last season and has a contract that will run out at the end of the 2022/23 season. He was impressed with his performances in the league and also represented Scotland at the U18 levels.
