Scott Brown and Kevin Thomson are unhappy Hibs rejected a double bid from Charlton.
Hibernian duo Scott Brown and Kevin Thomson are unhappy at the club's decision to reject an offer from Charlton.
Charlton tabled a £3million bid for the midfield duo earlier this week, but Hibs turned the English club's offer down flat.
Brown and Thomson are both looking to sign new improved deals at Easter Road, but they have been told the club will not meet their demands.
The two players' agent Willie McKay revealed the duo were unhappy with Hibs' stance as they would both be willing to extend their stay at the Edinburgh club.
McKay admitted he was still surprised that Hibs chairman Rod Petrie was constantly ignoring his calls to meet and discuss Brown's and Thomson's situation
"The boys are bitterly disappointed," McKay told skysports.com.
"Hibs knocked back the chance for both players to sign new improved deals.
"The players are in no rush to leave Hibs, but they must give them what they are worth.
"They cannot reject a £3million bid for both players and then refuse to pay them wages worthy of players in that price range.
"I've repeatedly been asking Rod Petrie to sit down with me and discuss the matter, but so far he has refused to meet me and the players are confused as to why the club will not do this."
