Ross County boss John Hughes gives transfer update on Hibs 'target'
The striker’s contract with the Staggies expires at the end of the season.
Stewart is currently out with an injury having not played since before Christmas, missing the previous five games, including the team's 2-0 win at Easter Road.
A number of clubs, both north and south of the border, have been linked with a move for the forward.
There was strong speculation surrounding a move to Hibs for Stewart back in June.
Ex-Hibs boss John Hughes, who replaced Stuart Kettlewell at County last month, is hoping the striker is back fit soon but has admitted he will be leaving the club.
An exit is likely at the end of the campaign but Hughes has not ruled out a possible move this month, depending on another striker arriving, the club's results in the next week or so and the money offered.
“Big Ross will be coming back [from injury],” Hughes said. “Hopefully he can get a couple of games in.
"I’m honest to stay I think Ross will be moving on at the end of the season but I like to think that if we can do good business and get one or two results before the window [shuts] then it is our position that if a good bid comes in for him and Ross fancied it and it suited the club then it will be our decision to do that kind of business.”
Stewart has struck six times in 24 appearances in all competitions this season.
