Hibs are fighting to keep Martin Boyle and Jackson Irvine beyond this summer. The couple draw admiring glances at a number of wealthy applicants.
Both Boyle and Irvine have been in great shape this season and have each been instrumental in helping the Easter Road finish third in the Premier League in Jack Ross’ first season at the club.

The pair are also eye-catchers in Saturday’s Scottish Cup final against St. Johnstone at Hampden, but the Sun reports they could play for their final time in the Hibees green and white.
Boyle has scored 15 goals this season and built an exciting relationship with Kevin Nisbet and Christian Doidge on the field, while Irvine has conjured up a number of formidable performances from mid-midfield.
But Boyle’s £ 500,000 buyout clause could attract a number of different clubs as Irvine’s contract expires after Saturday’s game – allegedly from Aberdeen and Stephen Glass.
Both players are definite starters as Ross and his team are looking for a historic piece of silver – but keeping both of them for a dip in Europe next season could be a very difficult task.
