Hibs fight to keep Boyle and Irvine past the Scottish Cup final

HIBS faces the battle to keep Martin Boyle and Jackson Irvine past the Scottish Cup final.

SunSport can show that Boyle is on the radar of clubs at home and abroad due to a £ 500,000 buyout clause in his contract.

Australia international Irvine, whose short-term contract ends after the cup final on Saturday, has been targeted by Aberdeen.

Boyle has scored 15 goals and formed an excellent hitting force with Kevin Nisbet and Christian Doidge.

Hibs could normally expect to charge a seven-digit fee for the winger, but it turns out that they are unable to prevent another club from adhering to the fixed price.

Boyle’s representatives added the clause when he signed a contract extension in 2020.

Now the 28-year-old should benefit from a move, in the hope that there will be a glorious exit this weekend in Hampden.

The cup winners enter next season’s play-offs in the Europa League, with profits of more than £ 3million.

Manager Jack Ross plans to talk to midfielder Irvine about a new deal.

But Aberenen has turned out to be a rival for his signature as new boss Stephen Glass continues his rebuilding.

The 28-year-old Irvine impressed in the second half of the season at Hibs after signing a six-month deal in January.

He is expected to have options in England, but the Dons could make a lucrative offer, with chairman Dave Cormack Glass backing.

They caught Scott Brown and Declan Gallagher, and striker Jay Emmanuel-Thomas will also head north when his Livingston contract expires.

Easter Road boss Ross wants to keep Irvine but has admitted that he has other options.

He said, “I had a conversation with Jackson. He still has a lot to weigh up and knows our position on it. “

Meanwhile, the Dons have confirmed that Ash Taylor, Tommie Hoban, Greg Leigh and Shay Logan are leaving the club.
