Hibernian have rejected a second bid from Celtic for midfielder John McGinn, according to Sky Sports.

Celtic had an initial offer of around £1.5m for the 23-year-old rejected by Hibs a last week and now they’ve seen a second bid worth £2m knocked back too.

Hibs are keen to keep hold of McGinn and will only sell him if the price is right and it looks like they want more than the £2m on offer from the Scottish champions.

Despite Celtic’s interest in him, the Edinburgh-based club expect McGinn to play in their Europa League qualifier against Faroese side NSI Runavik on Thursday evening and as it stands, they have no intention of letting him leave.

However, the midfielder is about to enter the final year of his contract at Easter Road and with no sign of him putting pen to paper on an extension, Hibs might be forced to let McGinn move this summer so they can get a reasonable fee for him.
