West Ham transfer target Josh Doig will be leaving Hibernian this summer according to Jack Ross.
Hammers boss David Moyes wants to bring the 19-year-old left-back to the London Stadium this summer according The Times.
Club insider ExWHUemployee then confirmed those claims.
And now Hibs manager Ross has suggested that Doig will most likely leave Easter Road this summer, when speaking to Sky Sports:
“My understanding is that it is highly likely Josh will move from the club, so we obviously have to prepare for that eventuality. Most likely that will happen soon. There has been strong interest that the club are hoping to finalise this week.”
We think Doig would be a stunning addition for West Ham.
Especially for the £5 million fee it will take to prise him away from Hibernian, as was reported by the Times.
West Ham to swoop in for Josh Doig?
With Ross having admitted that the teenager is set to depart, surely the Hammers are in a strong position to sign him.
And boy do we need a top-class left-back to provide more solid competition and cover for Aaron Cresswell.
In 22 Scottish Premiership outings for Hibs last season, the left-back racked up one goal and three assists. He averaged 1.7 tackles, 0.7 interceptions, 1.3 clearances and 1.3 successful aerial duels per game during those outings (Who Scored).
£5 million for a player with the young Scot’s talent and potential seems like outstanding value.
And after Ross’s comments yesterday, it is surely only a matter of time before West Ham make a concrete move for the young Scot.
