Neil Lennon has denied that Anthony Stokes has been dependent upon Hibernian in spite of his earnest attempts to sign the striker.
The Republic of Ireland universal is outstanding on the Easter Road porches having scored 33 objectives amid two spells at the club.
Stokes, who signed by Lennon amid his chance in control at Celtic, is right now a free specialist following his discharge from Sky Bet League One side Blackburn Rovers.
Lennon is quick to reinforce his assaulting alternatives in the wake of losing last season’s best scorer Jason Cummings to Nottingham Forest, yet demanded Stokes had not gone by the club in front of a potential move.
Statement By Lennon:
“He’s not been here, no,” Lennon said. “There’s no timescale [on marking Stokes]. The board are doing all that they can to attempt and get this going so I compliment them. It’s reassuring from our perspective so I can’t ask any more from the general population off camera.”
At the point when gotten some information about the likelihood of marking two strikers to supplant Cummings. Lennon stated: “Well in a perfect world, yes but that is unrealistic.”
“We’ll keep a watch out if whatever other open doors emerge. Yet any reasonable person would agree and it’s been very much reported that we are searching for another striker.”
Hibernian have made seven new increases amid the mid year window including Lithuanian couple Vykintas Slivka and Deivydas Matulevicius.
“Having global players coming into the squad will improve us,” he included.
“We are yet taking a gander at bringing home-developed players in. We have three in the squad now; Murray, Porteous and Ollie Shaw.”
