The Hoops had an offer for the Scottish international thrown out earlier this week and have now been told it’ll take a bid in the region of £3million to sign the player.

McGinn only has one year left on his current deal, though that will not stop Hibs from demanding a fair price for his services.

Brendan Rodgers said on Friday that he was hopeful a deal could be completed for the 23-year-old, who received a PFA Scotland Player of the Year nomination last season.

Celtic are looking to bolster their midfield ranks after Stuart Armstrong completed a £7million move to Southampton late last month.

Similar to McGinn, Armstrong was entering the final year of his contract.
