Aston Villa have reportedly become the front-runners for John McGinn after entering talks with Hibs over his transfer.
The Scottish Sun reports that Villa are in discussions with Easter Road bosses as they look to push through a deal before Thursday’s transfer deadline.
Celtic have had three bids for the player knocked back by Hibs. The last was said to be around £2million.
Hibs are understood to be holding out for close to double that amount and will now see if Villa can make a satisfactory offer.
The Scottish international is in the final year of his contract.
