    Default Josh Doig

    Rumour’s that 19 year old Hibernian left back Josh Doig is about to sold to Burnley but would then be immediately loaned out to us.

    But could also go to Watford in which case he would not come to us.

    Heard we have offered a loan to buy and the money is better than the two prem clubs

    I'd love that to be true, but it doesn't feel very likely given our current financial predicament (I'd imagine that they'd still want a chunky loan fee upfront).

    If he signs for a Premier League club (more likely) I'd happily take him on loan (as suggested in previous rumours).

    It isn't Burnley or Watford so a bit of guessing is involved and Alan Nixon will be showing he is the king of gossip again as he said it was neither of them from the beginning.

    Josh Doig back in the fold as Hibs boss Jack Ross says club is taking back control of transfer situation

    Josh Doig could be welcomed back into Hibs first team on Sunday as manager Jack Ross accused the teenager’s suitors of being all talk and no action.

    The young fullback, who made a huge impact in his debut season in the top tier of Scottish football, winning personal accolades as well as a legion of fans, was left out of the matchday squad for last weekend’s trip to Fir Park, with the club admitting that buyers were circling and his manager conceding that a move seemed likely.

    Worried that career-changing decisions could distract him, the 19-year-old was sidelined as the Easter Road club opened their new Premiership campaign with a 3-2 victory over Motherwell. But, almost a week later, the big-money offers have not materialised and Ross is keen to put the speculation behind them and get Doig’s mind back on Hibs.

    “I’ve tried to be fairly frank in my explanation of the situation and I will do so again,” he said when quizzed about the future of the youngster who was listed among the substitutes for the Rijeka clash on Thursday.

    Clearly exasperated by the drawn-out saga and the way it has disrupted his plans and unsettled the player he brought into the first team set-up at the start of last season, Ross admitted the past week’s negotiations had not played out as anticipated.

    “We were very strongly led to believe that things would move quickly. They haven’t done so and if they [the club’s who expressed interest in buying Doig] don’t walk the walk like they talked the talk we will have to take control of the situation again.

    “So, from now Josh will be part of my squad again unless something changes.”

    The Edinburgh lad made a real impact at the beginning of last season, ousting stalwart Lewis Stevenson from the left-back berth. But this term he was derailed slightly after testing positive for covid and missing some of pre-season while he self-isolated but he has been catching up on his fitness, with Ross praising his attitude.

    But the Leith manager admitted that despite Doig’s best endeavours his form, in training and in games, had suffered.

    “But, now it’s about him showing good form to return to the team and push from there.”

    Sounds like Forest!

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    It is Burnley isn't it?

    If we are reliant on them signing him for us to get him on loan could be a long wait. We know what they are like.

    We won't be signing him on loan from Burnley this summer, that's for certain. It would require Burnley actually stumping up more than 50p and a packet of Quavers that are 7 years past their sell by date.
