Leigh Griffiths hopes Hibernian and Wolves can come to an agreement that would pave the way for him to move to Easter Road permanently
Griffiths is currently on loan at the Scottish Premier League club but Wolves have indicated that they want to sell the striker outright after he failed to force his way into manager Mick McCarthy’s first-team plans.
The 21-year-old admits Wolves’ decision to sell him is a hard one to take, but would be delighted to continue his career at Easter Road.
“It’s out of my hands whether Hibs want to extend my loan deal or make it permanent but I’m loving every minute here,” said Griffiths in the Daily Record.
“Wolves want to sell me so if I have to go back there I’m just going to have to bide my time.
“Going from the First Division with Dundee to the English Premiership is a massive step, and I knew I wasn’t going down there to be anywhere near the first team straight away.
“It never happened the first few months but I’ve scored a few goals since I came back up here on loan. Then I got the phone call last Tuesday. It’s a hard one to take but I’ve just got to wait and see what happens.
“I’ve loved coming up here to play for the team I supported as a boy. To be honest, I never want to leave and if Wolves and Hibs manage to strike up a deal I’ll be absolutely delighted to stay at Easter Road.”
