When asked about whether there was any truth in the rumour, Levein bluntly said: "No."

The Evening News understands that Hibs also hold no aspirations of bringing the player to Easter Road.

Levein added: "I will bring in another midfielder. How vital is it? It's not so vital that I need to do it before tomorrow night.

"I'm going to take a little bit of time and make sure we get the right person. But I will bring another midfield player in."
