The offer from English Championship side Millwall for Porteous is believed to be worth over £1 million, while Birmingham City have tested the club’s resolve with a £2 million offer for Nisbet.

The Easter Road side are said to be assessing their options with just four days left before the end of the January window. There is no immediate need to sell with both players tied down on long-term deals.

Scotland under-21 star Porteous doesn’t see his contract run out until 2023 having signed an extension last January, while Nisbet is just six months into the four-year deal he penned after joining in a £200,000 move from Dunfermline Athletic last summer.

The 23-year-old has bagged 13 goals in 30 appearances since the move up to the Scottish Premiership and there are growing calls for him to be included in Scotland’s Euro 2020 squad.
