Hibs ace Griffiths tells Wolves he wants to stay

Leigh Griffiths has told Wolves that he wants to stay with Hibernian.

The 22-year old striker took out the Scottish Football Writers' Player of the Year award as well as the Scottish Premier League yearly award and PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year as he scored 28 goals for the Edinburgh outfit.

His loan at Easter Road is due to expire after the Scottish Cup final with Celtic this weekend but Griffiths has made it clear that he wants to return now that Wolves are down in League One.

"It's not 100 per cent definite that I'll be going back to Wolves. I want to stay here. I love the club and I don't want to leave yet," he said.

"It's up to Hibs and Wolves to agree a fee. Wolves have taken up the option of another year on my contract and they want me to be a big part of their plans for promotion next season.

"But I don't want to leave Hibs. It's the fans that I have really taken to because I'm one of them. I've showed on the park how much they mean to me and how much the club means to me.

"I love the club too much to go but if Sunday's match is to be my last, then what a way to go out with a Scottish Cup final and hopefully a winner's medal."
