Neil Lennon: 'John McGinn would not leave Hibernian for less than £4m'

Neil Lennon says that Hibernian midfielder John McGinn is not for sale and no bid below £4m would even be considered for the 22-year-old Scotland international.

Neil Lennon has slapped a price tag of up to £5m on Hibernian midfielder John McGinn to ward off any interest in the player.

The 22-year-old impressed last season for the Edinburgh side, making 37 appearances in all competitions, scoring five goals and registering 10 assists.

As a result, Celtic and Ipswich Town have been linked with the Scotland international this summer, but Lennon has issued a hands-off warning to potential suitors.

Lennon told The Scotsman: "He's not for sale. It's going to take a huge bid from any club to take John away from us, £4-5m. He's still got a bit to do but already he is a quality player. He's a Scottish international.

"I have got a proven international who is 22. He's not even anywhere near his peak yet but we already know what a good all-round player he is. He's one of the best players in Scotland for his age."

Hibs have already lost star man Jason Cummings to Nottingham Forest this summer.
