Doig signed a new long-term deal at Easter Road earlier this year but that is not stopping Leicester from keeping tabs on him.

He started his career in the academy of Hearts but made the switch to their Edinburgh rivals in the summer of 2019. He later signed a new deal a few months later running until 2023 and was loaned out to Queen’s Park in the Scottish League Two to gain experience.

The Scotland youth International returned to Hibs ahead of this season and impressed in pre-season.

He has since been a regular in their senior side in this campaign and has made 27 appearances in all competitions, chipping in with four assists.

His breakthrough into their team has not gone unnoticed this term and it will be interesting to see if any English clubs launch a move.
