Wolves striker Leigh Griffiths hopes to sign permanently for Hibs.

The striker moved to his boyhood heroes on loan four months ago to get some first team experience.

He said: "Right now, I am contracted here until January 9 and everything is out of my hands.

"But if Wolves and Hibs were able to strike a deal I'd be absolutely delighted to stay here.

"Mick McCarthy has said he wants to sell me and I'll be honest, I didn't think that was coming.

"He just phoned me and explained that I wasn't going to be in his plans so it was best all round if he sold me.

"But he's made his mind up and I can't do very much about it now."
