NEIL LENNON will try to convince Celtic to sell Scott Allan to the Easter Road club after their tumultuous recent history with the John McGinn saga.
Allan spent the second half of last season at loan in Edinburgh and was one of their best players.
Now McGinn has gone to Villa – Lennon is eyeing midfield reinforcements and will look to bring Allan to help beef up his squad.
Scott has one year left on his current Celtic deal and is nowhere near the first team.
However, there could be a reluctance to sell to Hibs while the McGinn stuff is so fresh.
The player is desperate for first team football and trains regularly with the Celtic first team in the hope of getting a move in the near future.
With the English transfer window closes – it would appear the best chance the midfielder has of a move would be in Scotland.
