Peterborough United expect Jason Naismith return with Hibs yet to make their move


HIBS are yet to show any interest in making Jason Naismith’s loan deal permanent, according to Peterborough United director of football Barry Fry.

Naismith, 25, impressed in his 14 appearances for the Hibees after arriving from the Posh last August.

However, his progress was cruelly derailed when he suffered a knee ligament damage in January which required surgery and ended his campaign prematurely.

Naismith’s rehabilitation has been overseen by Hibs following an agreement between the respective clubs, however he remains contracted to Peterborough until the summer of 2021.

And, while Easter Road head coach Jack Ross is a long-time admirer of Naismith, Fry says he expects the player to be back at London Road next term.

Fry told the Peterborough Telegraph: “I think Jason will be back. Hibernian have not said they want to keep him yet. The injury has complicated things.”
