The transfer window opens on June 14 and it's set to be a busy summer at Hibs and beyond.

With the arrival of new sporting director Malky Mackay - who officially starts work on June 1 - it's expected there will be significant movement in and out at Easter Road over these next few months. And that's before you throw in the small matter of appointing a new manager.

It's understood Hibs are considering an offer of around £2.5million from an unnamed French club for Elie Youan, and it could be time for the winger to move on to pastures new. Such a fee would represent a significant profit on the £700,000 that Hibs paid for the 25-year-old last summer, but his goals and assists record (he hit double figures on both last season) would not be easy to replace. Youan has had a fractious relationship with elements of the Hibs support of late, and it remains to be seen whether he chooses to head for a new beginning. 

Editor Patrick McPartlin was joined by Liam Bryce on Thursday evening to discuss the forward's future, and assess his spell in Scotland. We ask whether it's the right time for everyone to agree a departure, and where Hibs could benefit from raking in an not inconsiderable amount of money which could then be redistributed to aid the looming squad rebuild.

Also on the agenda was the future of Hibs academy graduate Josh Doig. It's understood the full-back has held initial talks over a move to Serie A giants Roma, a move that could see him remain in the Italian top-flight for years to come. His current club, Sassuolo, were relegated to Serie B, and a move to the Stadio Olimpico could provide a lifeline for Doig to continue playing at the highest level.

Roma finished sixth in the table last season, securing Europa League football, something that would surely be a huge draw for the 22-year-old. We discuss his career progression to date, and the potential for him to kick on even further at one of the biggest names in Italian, and European, football.

We also found time to react to the Premier Sports Cup group stage draw, with Hibs coming up against Queen's Park, Kelty Hearts, Peterhead, and Elgin City. You can watch the full discussion on our YouTube channel via the video player above.
