Sky Sports understands Hibernian have made a bid for Scunthorpe United midfielder Michael O'Connor.
O'Connor is out of contract at the end of the season and he is attracting the interest of a number of clubs.
The Northern Ireland international has been one of Scunthorpe's shining lights this term in a disappointing campaign for the Iron.
Hibs boss Pat Fenlon is thought to be a big admirer of the classy midfielder and has made an offer to bring the player to Easter Road.
However, the Edinburgh outfit are thought to be struggling to meet Scunthorpe's asking price.
A number of other clubs are thought to be waiting in the wings to move for O'Connor should Scunthorpe decide to cash-in on him rather than risk losing him for nothing in the summer.
