Hibernian coach Ross confirms Arsenal, West Ham target Doig set to depart

Hibernian coach Jack Ross has confirmed Josh Doig is set to leave the club.

Doig, 19, was left out of the Hibernian squad for Sunday's game against Motherwell.

He has been linked with Watford, Arsenal, West Ham United, Celtic and Chelsea.

Speaking to Sky Sports ahead of Sunday's game, Ross said: "My understanding is that it is highly likely Josh will move from the club.

"We have to prepare for that eventuality - it looks like that will happen soon.

"There has been strong interest, that I think the club are trying to finalise this week, one way or another.

"I don't think it has been a brilliant situation for Josh - he is a young man who has only just turned 19 years old and it's a lot to deal with.

"I think for us and him it is better if we draw it to a conclusion, one way or another.

"Obviously I would be delighted if he was still part of our club but it looks most likely he will move on.

"For me as a manager you would like that to have been dealt with earlier - but we are fortunate to have another excellent left-back in our squad in Lewis Stevenson."
