Hibs have cooled their interest in signing Sheffield United midfielder Stefan Scougall.

Former Livingston starlet Scougall, 23, was wanted by the Hibees, St Johnstone and English clubs Portsmouth and Chesterfield.

The Scotland Under-21 international is available for loan as he is not in Blades manager Nigel Adkins’ plans, but the Blades are asking for too much money for either a loan or permanent transfer.

Scougall had agreed earlier in the transfer window to move to Doncaster, but the deal fell through after Sheffield United demanded too high a loan fee.

Meanwhile, Hibs have completed the signing of 19-year-old striker Josh Peters from Highland League club Strathspey Thistle. He is expected to join the club’s under-20 squad.
