Striker hopes for permanent move to ER

On loan Hibs striker Leigh Griffiths has revealed that he would love to stay at the club he loves.

The 22-year-old has been on loan at Easter Road for the past two seasons, and with his current situation with parent club Wolves up in the air, has stated he'd like to sign permanently at Hibs.

Griffiths has hit 28 goals this season, and is hoping to be the first Hibs player to hit the 30 goal mark in 40 years.

The Scotland international said:

"I don't know what's going on with Wolves at the minute and I won't know until there is a new manager appointed.

"God knows how long that will take but hopefully it is sorted sooner rather than later. If it's done before the cup final, maybe the new man can come up and watch me play.

"Do I want to go back down to England and set a few things straight? You can never say never. If Wolves want to take that option of another year on my contract, then I will go back down there.

"But it's out of my hands. It's down to Wolves and Hibs and whether they can come to an agreement. If they can, then people know it would just be a case of me signing on the dotted line and people know I will do that."
