In demand striker on Calderwood radar?? More Hibs news from this morning's tabloids have the Hibees eyeing up a loan move for Leigh Griffiths. The 20-year-old Hibs fanatic is currently in discussions with Wolves, after they had a bid of £150,000 accepted by the administrators at first division side Dundee. Wolves plan to then send Griffiths back out on loan to gain more experience, and according to the papers today, Hibs and Hearts have joined St Johnstone in the race to sign him on loan until the summer. Griffiths has already had a superb start to his career, scoring 48 goals in 93 games, for both Livingston and Dundee. Dundee paid Livingston £100,000 for his services, and the youngster has continued to smash in the goals. Griffiths has already been capped at U19 and U21 for Scotland, and he has already played for the Scotland B side, and scored against Northern Ireland in a 3-0 win.
