Hibernian want to sign Derby County midfielder Craig Bryson, according to the Edinburgh News.

The Scottish Premiership side are looking to bolster their midfield options this month and see Bryson as an ideal signing.

Their manager, Neil Lennon, has been busy looking to add to his squad this month. Hibs have already acquired Ryan Gauld on loan from Sporting Lisbon but want more players now.

Bryson, who is 32 years-old, is out of contract at Derby County at the end of the season meaning he could be looking at options for life after the Rams.

He moved to Pride Park in 2011 and has since played over 250 games for them in the Championship. He spent last season on loan at Cardiff City and was part of Neil Warnock’s side who were promoted to the Premier League.

Bryson may have thought his Derby career was over after his loan away but he has fought his way back into the team under Frank Lampard this season.

The Scottish international started his career with Clyde and went onto play for their first-team in the Scottish second tier before he was signed by Kilmarnock in 2007. Bryson impressed in his four years in the Scottish Premiership.

Bryson will not be short of options in Scotland when his Derby deal expires. It seems unlikely that he will leave them this month considering he is playing games for Lampard. It does appear that a move back up north would be on the cards in the future though.
