Celtic target Martin Boyle is set for showdown talks with current club Hibernian, following their decision to reject a £2 million bid from Saudi Arabian club Al-Faisaly.
Making a considerable contribution to the Hibees this campaign, the Australian internationalist has registered 19 goal contributions in 27 appearances; 14 goals and five assists.
He now looks set for crunch discussions over his future owing to recent developments.
Boyle is set to meet with Ron Gordon to discuss the best way forward for himself and the club, due to Hibernian rejecting a bid of £2 million for his services. If the offer was accepted, the 28-year-old would stand to make around £1 million per year in wages, which would be life-changing money for the versatile attacker.
He is said to be ‘livid’ with not being able to explore the option of moving to the Middle East.
Former Celt Shaun Maloney does not want to lose Boyle between now and the end of the season.
Celtic are believed to be keen on bringing the winger to Parkhead and have been strongly linked with him over the last few weeks. Looking now unlikely to pitch up in Glasgow, only time will tell what the future holds for the Aberdeen-born man.
