St Johnstone linked with Oli Shaw but Hibs don’t want to let him go

Oli Shaw.
Oli Shaw.

Paul Heckingbottom has confirmed that several clubs are keen to snap up Oli Shaw on loan after the highly-rated striker was linked with a switch to St Johnstone.

However, the Hibernian head coach is adamant the Scotland under-21 international is going nowhere unless the capital club bring in a suitable replacement before the transfer window closes.

Heckingbottom revealed that Shaw is keen to leave Easter Road on a temporary basis, having fallen behind Flo Kamberi and £350,000 summer signing Christian Doidge in the pecking order.

Shaw, who has scored 12 goals for Hibs since breaking into the first-team in 2017, made three appearances in the Betfred Cup group phase but is yet to feature in the Premiership this term and is growing increasingly frustrated.

Tommy Wright is understood to be keen to take him to Perth, while Hamilton have been credited with an interest in the player in the past.

Heckingbottom said: “There are clubs who will take Oli, we know that. But we’re not letting him go unless we get someone in. That won’t change.

“One thing we can’t do is weaken our options.

“There’s interest from the Premiership and Championship but it’s nothing we can pursue right now. Oli knows the situation so we’ll wait and see. Oli is a good lad but he’s frustrated and wants to play.

“I want him to stay here, fight and get in the team.

“We are clear in what we want from him and what will get him in the team. That’s not changed – it’s Oli who wants to go.”
