Wolves striker Griffiths wants Hibernian stay

Leigh Griffiths is hoping that Wolves and Hibernian can sort out a deal so he can remain at Easter Road.

The 21-year old striker joined Hibs on loan in August this year after Wolves signed him from Dundee in January and it has emerged that the Molineux outfit are keen to sell him in January.

Griffiths, who has netted four league goals in 15 appearances, admits he is enjoying his time with Hibs and is looking to stay on if the two clubs can agree a deal.

"It's out of my hands whether Hibs want to extend my loan deal or make it permanent but I'm loving every minute here,” Griffiths told the Daily Record.

"Wolves want to sell me so if I have to go back there I'm just going to have to bide my time.

"Going from the First Division with Dundee to the English Premiership is a massive step, and I knew I wasn't going down there to be anywhere near the first team straight away.

"It never happened the first few months but I've scored a few goals since I came back up here on loan. Then I got the phone call last Tuesday. It's a hard one to take but I've just got to wait and see what happens.

"I've loved coming up here to play for the team I supported as a boy. To be honest, I never want to leave and if Wolves and Hibs manage to strike up a deal I'll be absolutely delighted to stay at Easter Road."
