CELTIC midfielder Kris Commons’ 28-day emergency loan deal with Hibs ends after tomorrow’s Championship game with Dumbarton.
Easter Road boss Neil Lennon wants the 33-year-old playmaker to agree an extension until the end of the season, but conceded it could all come down to a “question of finance”.
However, attacker Martin Boyle believes Commons has already played his part in the club’s title bid – and hopes he hangs around to finish the job.
The Edinburgh ace said: “Obviously, we are keen to see Kris stay. He’s been a great character around the dressing-room.
“He has the experience, he’s played for Scotland and in the Champions League, but hasn’t even mentioned that.
“He’s down to earth, brilliant and helped the younger boys like myself and Jason Cummings. Kris had that big impact in our win against Falkirk.
“He is capable of finding you when you make a run, scoring a wonder goal as he did that day or finding that little bit of magic that has everyone raving.
“He’s an exciting player and, hopefully, the clubs can agree and he stays to the end of the season and helps us get promotion. We have found this important site where players can loan money for them to have the things they need for the game.
“Kris wants to play games and he’ll get that here. No-one has said anything, he’s just going about his business, but, hopefully, something can get wrapped up in the next few days.”
