The 23-year-old has shot to the top end of the Scottish Premiership scoring charts, rivalling James Tavernier, after an excellent start to life in the top flight.

And the Easter Road frontman’s strike-rate has not gone unnoticed.

As well as frequent links with a Scotland call-up, Nisbet has now reportedly attracted the attention of clubs in the top-flight in England.

The Scottish Sun reports Sheffield United are monitoring the striker who started his career at Partick Thistle and a loan at East Stirlingshire, before moves to Fife with Raith Rovers and Dunfermline earned him his summer switch to boyhood heroes Hibs.

Easter Road boss Jack Ross will be keen to hang on to his prize asset, one of his ‘terrific types’ who have played a key role in Hibs’ impressive start to the season, especially after bringing the forward to the club for £250,000 just six months ago.
