Report: Jason Cummings to stick with Hibernian, despite Championship interest

Elland Road East Stand

Nottingham Forest, Derby County and Leeds United have all been linked with Jason Cummings.

According to a report on Sky Sports’ live transfer feed at 15:18, Hibernian have managed to fend off interest in striker Jason Cummings.

Nottingham Forest, Derby County and Leeds United have all been linked with the striker in the Daily Mail and the Scotsman.

However, Hibs have been determined to keep hold of their prized youngster - and have rejected all offers so far.

They now believe that they have done enough to keep hold of Cummings until the end of the season at the very least.

The 20-year-old has racked up 18 goals in 27 appearances this season, making him one of Scotland’s most dangerous strikers.

Cummings’ impressive form has helped Hibs climb into promotion contention in the Scottish Championship, although they are currently trailing top of the table Rangers.

Derby, Forest and Leeds had all reportedly wanted to bring him to the Championship, but they have now missed out, leaving them looking elsewhere for new players before the close of the transfer window at 11pm this evening.
