Hibs manager Lee Johnson has refused to rule out a swoop for Dundee United star Dylan Levitt.
The Easter Road outfit are weighing up a move for the Wales international as they seek to bolster their midfield options.
United are thought to be holding out for a fee in the region of £500,000.
Levitt has one year remaining on his deal, and Johnson was coy regarding Hibs’ position — while doing nothing to distance Hibs from the reports.
“He’s not our player, and I can’t talk about someone who isn’t our player,” said Johnson following Hibs’ 4-2 win against Edinburgh City on Saturday.
“It’s always difficult to put a number on (potential signings) because there are so many different factors involved.
“We want to bring in players, but we also want to coach up and make players better too."
