Hibs have denied reports they're in talks to sell to Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.

The Daily Record says Spanish sources suggested stated the Russian billionaire was launching a bid to buy 55 per cent of Real Mallorca - and was looking at a number of clubs worldwide, including Corinthians in Brazil, Israel's Hapoel Tel Aviv and Hibs.

But an Easter Road source said last night that there was no truth in the Hibs link.

He said: "This is absolute nonsense, there has been no contact. There have been a number of stories going around but there is nothing in any of them."
