Here's a selection of Hibs fans' responses to the news...

Robbie Howie said: "You could see this coming this summer, would need to be a big offer, £3 million plus."

Another Hibs fan suggested: "Better get on the phone to Adam Bogdan pronto..."

Scott Kettles reasoned: "Decent fee for him and out the door, don’t want players who openly state they want a bigger move in the press. Very good shot-stopper, especially from close range. Replaceable? Yes."

One supporter wrote: "Good replacement if a bid comes for Rocky off the back of this. Disappointing the number of players that do this when they go away on international duty."

Scott Finlayson said: "Wouldn’t be surprised if [Celtic manager Neil] Lennon comes calling."

Another Hibs follower added: "Guy's been brilliant so if he can get a big move then fair play to him."

Junaid Hussan feared: "Hibs are a bottom-half team if this happens."

One supporter had a suggestion: "If you go, we get to keep Shelly [Marciano's wife]."

Stuart Storar kept it short and sweet: "Never leave."

Matt Reid wrote: "If he's not 100% committed, move him on and find someone who is. Would be a huge loss but don't want players who don't care about the club."

Another fan admitted: "He deserves it to be honest, make sure it’s a huge fee though and a massive sell on clause - brilliant goalkeeper."

Hibs fan Jason tweeted: "Had a feeling this might happen - the bright side being, it would take some decent money to see him leave."

Danny Sweeney said: "Had a feeling this was coming... wonder if he’ll be heading along the M8?"
