Martin Boyle transfer bid reportedly rejected by Hibs
Hibs have reportedly knocked back a £500,000 bid for Martin Boyle from Al Faisaly.
Boyle is Hibs most prized asset and a much higher offer would be required for the club to even consider entering into negotiations over the sale of the pacy forward, who struck a first-half hat-trick in the recent Premier Sports Cup semi-final win over Rangers.
The Australian international previously had a half million pound release clause in his contract for bids which came from outwith Scotland but this was removed when he signed a new deal with the Easter Road outfit in August, which runs out in 2024.
The new terms were agreed after the Edinburgh club rejected a previous £500,000 bid for their 28-year-old talisman from Premiership rivals Aberdeen during the last transfer window.
Al Faisaly - who won the King Cup earlier this season - are said to be 'unlikely' to return with an offer that will tempt Hibs back to the table.
