Leeds United-linked striker to sign new contract

Hibs striker Jason Cummings is to sign a new contract with the Scottish Championship club, according to the Evening Express. The Mirror understands that both Leeds United and Wolverhampton Wanderers were interested in signing the player.

The 20-year-old was also heavily linked with a move to the Championship with Rotherham United, who are now managed by former Hibernian head coach Alan Stubbs. He is now set to extend his stay with the Scottish club.

Speculation surrounding the talent frontman has been rife as he only had a year remaining on his Easter Road deal. Nevertheless, that speculation will soon die down as manager Neil Lennon has confirmed he is set to pen an extension,

“I think it’s all but agreed. Hopefully there will be an announcement in the next few hours.

“He had a great season last year. I like the kid, he has a very infectious personality.

“I think it will be good for him to stay another year here, mature and improve his game, but he has really good attributes already.

“Obviously it’s a big boost for the club and supporters as well to have a goalscorer of his ilk to be with us still.”

Wolves were said to be lining up a £1million bid for the Scotland Under-21 international. However he looks highly likely to continue his development in his native country for the time being. That being said, this probably won’t be the last time an English club is linked with Jason Cummings.

Leeds were also said to be taking more serious interest in the forward. It is well-documented that Garry Monk is still hoping to take another striker to Elland Road. Cummings would’ve fit the bill quite nicely considering his age. They may rediscover this route further down the line, however for now, he remains a Hibernian player.
