Hearts 'reject six-figure' bid for Edinburgh derby hero - offer from English Championship

Hearts have reportedly rejected a six-figure bid from Edinburgh derby hero Toby Sibbick.

The 23-year-old has emerged as a key player for Robbie Neilson’s men, starting the last six matches. He set up a goal in the 5-0 rout of Aberdeen in the Premiership during the week and then scored the third in a 3-0 win over Hibs at Easter Road in the Scottish Cup on Sunday.

According to the Scottish Sun, Championship relegation-battlers Blackpool have had a bid rejected by Hearts who have no interest in selling. Sibbick was signed from Barnsley 12 months ago for a fee understood to be six figures. Despite some initial inconsistencies he has turned into a fan favourite and an important member of the defensive line. One which has kept three clean sheets in the last four outings.
