Popular Championship transfer target Jason Cummings has declared that he is staying at Hibernian to help the club’s Scottish Championship title push according to The Daily Record.

The Edinburgh club are in their second season in the Scottish Championship after their relegation from the SPL in 2014. The Hibees currently trail leaders Rangers by 3 points.

Striker Jason Cummings has become a popular transfer target for English Championship clubs after scoring 16 goals for the Easter Road club this season. A whole host of Championship clubs have shown an interest in the Edinburgh born youngster including Leeds United, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Derby County and Sheffield Wednesday to name just a few.

The 20 year old hitman spoke to the press after last Saturday’s home victory over Raith Rovers to confirm that he is looking to stay at Easter Road in an attempt to help the club beat Glasgow giants Rangers to the Scottish Championship title.

The striker scored 21 goals for Hibernian last season and it is understood that Cummings hopes to stay at Easter Road to beat last season’s goal tally for the club.

Despite being a Hearts fan, Cummings is said to have a good relationship with supporters of The Hibees and he enjoys playing under Manager Alan Stubbs at Easter Road.
