Hibs fullback Doig calm about Sassuolo, Arsenal rumours

Josh Doig is ignorig speculation about his future at Hibernian.

The 19-year-old left-back was linked with moves to Arsenal, Leeds and Watford last summer but remained at Easter Road and in November signed a new deal that runs until the summer of 2026.

However, reports claimed Serie A side Sassuolo were at Pittodrie at the weekend to cast their eye on Doig and Aberdeen defender Calvin Ramsay during the Premiership clash between the Dons and Hibs.

Doig, on Euro 2023 qualifying duty with Scotland Under-21s where he will face Turkey at Tynecastle on Friday night before a trip to Kazakhstan next week, said: "I am kind of getting used to it, I have learned from the summer when I let it distract me a little bit.

"I am ignoring it and getting on with the football.

"Don't look at anything, Twitter, Instagram, stay away from it all, just play your football, at the end of the day, that's what will get you your move in the end.

"You have your family, your pals, telling you all sorts of things.

"It is nice to hear sometimes but as a professional you need to put it to the back of your mind and just get on with training and playing every day and just enjoying your football."
