Tony Mowbray has stated Hibs have no interest in selling Derek Riordan.Hibernian manager Tony Mowbray has stated the SPL club have no interest in selling in-form striker Derek Riordan.
The 22-year-old strengthened his profile even further at the weekend by netting a hat-tick in Hibs' victory over Kilmarnock.
Riordan, who now has 15 goals on the season, had been linked with a move to Championship outfit Leeds United.
However, Mowbray has stated Hibs are not a selling club and are not silly enough to allow a key player to leave Easter Road.
"I am sure Derek has no ambition at this moment to leave this football club," he said to Edinburgh Evening News.
"There is no need for us to sell him and it would be rather foolish of us to offload him."
