Hibs boss John Collins insists fullback David Murphy isn't on his way to West Brom or Nottingham Forest.

Collins said: "I honestly do not know where that is coming from, but it's simply not true.

"We expect stories like this to come out at this time of the year, in particular, and there is not much we can do about speculation other than assure our own supporters that our focus is on having the strongest possible squad ready for the new season."
