Hibernian are considering the sale of striker Kevin Nisbet after receiving an improved offer from Millwall.

The English Championship side saw an initial bid of £1.1m rejected by Hibs but have now returned with a new deal. Including add-ons, it would see the Easter Road receive more than £2m.

With just a few days left in the transfer window, Hibernian are now considering whether to give the go-ahead for the first choice striker in Lee Johnson’s squad to leave. Other Championship sides have registered an interest but Millwall’s bid is the only one being weighed up.

Nisbet, who has 10 Scotland caps, has scored 34 times in 88 games for Hibs. After missing the start of the season, he’s scored seven goals in seven games since returning to fitness.

The forward is not the only player who could be nearing the exit door at Easter Road. An offer remains on the table from Watford for defender Ryan Porteous.

With Porteous out of contract at the end of the season, Hibs are content to sell during the window, but are not ready to give the move the green light just yet.

After Rocky Bushiri suffered an injury in the derby against Hearts, Johnson is short of defensive options for this weekend’s game against Aberdeen.

If Hibs can sign a defender before Saturday then Porteous could leave shortly. If not, a move is still likely to happen before the transfer deadline but only after the player made his final appearance this weekend.
