Hibs are keen to keep Nisbet at the club and are in talks over a new contract for the striker. They are also keen to bolster their attacking options, with Christian Doidge and Jamie Murphy on the treatment table.

Nisbet was the subject of a £3 million offer from Birmingham City in the January window which Hibs rejected. The 24-year-old handed in a transfer request at the time but is once again settled in Leith and was included in the Scotland squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifying triple-header.
