Peterborough united defender Jason naismith wants to return to Hibernian this summer, as per a report by the Edinburgh evening news. 

The right-back spent this past season with the Scottish Premiership side and is open to going back.

Naismith, who is 25 years old, joined Hibs last summer and made just 14 appearances for the Edinburgh side due to injury.

The ex-Scotland Under-21 international still has a year left on his contract at Peterborough. He joined the Posh from Ross County in 2018 and played 50 games for Darren Ferguson’s side in his first campaign at London Road.

However, he was loaned back to Scotland this past term and is interested in returning to Hibs. He has said; “I wouldn’t mind it! I made my feelings clear when I first joined Hibs. It’s a fantastic club and the fans have taken to me.

“Their support has been brilliant throughout the season, especially while I’ve been injured. Some of the messages you get, it lifts your spirits and motivates you. If Hibs came calling it would be a no-brainer. It would be nice to go back there, and it’s something I would seriously consider.”

He added: “At the end of the day I’m still a Peterborough player and I’d give my all for them every day in training, I wouldn’t let myself down like that. I train every day to the best of my ability.

“We’ll see what happens and if a deal could be struck (with Hibs) then it’s something that would seriously interest me.”

Prior to his move to Peterborough two years ago, Naismith had spells in Scotland with St Mirren, Greenock Morton, Cowdenbeath and Ross County.
