Celtic can now ponder over making an official approach towards Hibernian midfielder after hearing the words of Easter Road Chief Executive, Leeann Dempster. She was quoted, “We don’t live and die by transfer fees. If we were to receive a transfer fee for a player of some significance, of course, that would be welcome.”
Earlier reports claimed that McGinn was weathering the rumour storms while away on international duty in South America. The 23-year-old was serving Scotland in the friendlies against Peru and Mexico.
When asked about the rumours surrounding him, McGinn said, “I am glad to be on the other side of the world at the moment if I am honest. I am aware of what’s going on and what’s being said.”
“The speculation is only there because I have been playing well. As a team, we have been different class but you must be doing something right when you see your name linked with all these clubs.”
The attacking midfielder became a part of the first Hibs trio alongside Lewis Stevenson and Dylan McGeouch to start for the Scotland senior team since the 1956 1-1 draw against England. McGinn has now been capped 9 times for the Tartan Army and 12 times for the U19 and U21 sides.
He has been with the Cabbage for three seasons and is entering the final 12 months of his current contract. The 23-year-old played in 46 games last term and found the back of the net 6 times. He also furthered 8 assists to help his team to the 4th spot of the Scottish Premiership.
John McGinn has been prolific for the Easter Road-based outfit and equally impressive for his country, forcing clubs both domestic and from the north side of the border to take notice of his talents. Celtic would only be furthering their already impressive talent pool that Brendan Rodgers has successfully allocated to win the domestic treble two years in a row.
McGinn has developed into a prime attacking talent who could take his game to the next level at Glasgow. He will be challenging Tom Rogic in the attacking midfield position and could also serve as a replacement for Stuart Armstrong in case Celtic get their hands on him this summer.
The latter is hesitating to extend his contract and is reportedly attracting interest from Crystal Palace. Should the 26-year-old leave for Selhurst Park this summer, McGinn could serve as the starting partner next to veteran Scott Brown in the holding midfield role.
