Myziane Maolida Hibs transfer competition drummed up and potential road blocks faced

Hertha Berlin are looking to cash in on Myziane Maolida's Hibs form by offering him around to prospective buyers, according to a report.

The forward has been the Hibees' find of the season and bright spot of an up-and-down campaign after signing on loan in January. Eight goals an 15 appearances is a very strong return and while it wasn't quite enough to seal a top six spot, the Comoros international has certainly been an impressive performer.

It seems to be good news for his parent club too as they look to cash in. Hertha are not interested in taking the 25-year-old back for next season despite the form he's shown and have asked intermediaries to offer the player round to other clubs, reports the Edinburgh Evening News.

The report adds that the Easter Road club have not given up hope of getting the player back for the 2024/25 campaign, but may find road blocks on top of potential competition.

The 2. Bundesliga side's preference would be to sell Maolida and try to recoup some of the €10million Euros they paid to Nice for his services in 2021.

They are said to be open to another loan but would require an option to buy to be included and would also be looking for the majority of his wages to be covered, which could be difficult for the capital side.

Hibs are likely to overhaul their squad this summer after the disappointment of a bottom six finish. Separately, the club will undergo a full review of the football department with manager Nick Montgomery's job thought to be not completely safe.
