West Brom boss Tony Mowbray has hit out at Hibs over their price for fullback David Murphy.
But it appears he will not be reunited with the player at The Hawthorns.
Mowbray told the Scotsman: "I had one discussion six weeks ago. I was quoted a ridiculously high price for a player who cost nothing. It finished there."
Murphy, under contract until 2010, has been a big hit in the Scottish Premier League and is hugely popular with Hibs fans.
