Chelsea are reportedly interested in 18 year old Hibernian left-back Josh Doig.

Arsenal, Manchester City, Leeds United, AC Milan and Celtic are also reportedly interested in signing the defender.

Quizzed on the interest he has been attracting, Doig told Sky Sports: “I do see the stuff on Twitter, you are always going to come by it. I just let it by me, I don’t really focus on it too much.

“I know people are always going to talk if you are a young player and doing alright in the team, but you can’t look too much into it.

“You get your pals messaging you saying this and that is happening, but by mum and dad will never mention much and they will keep me grounded.

“I’m not focusing on it too much. It’s a massive confidence boost for myself, obviously, seeing big teams are interested. I can just use that to give myself a confidence boost and use it in my game. Big teams are looking so why not use that as a confidence booster.”

He added: “It’s just taking it as it comes. I have done that all season, never look too far ahead. Whatever happens, happens.

“I absolutely love it here at Hibs, they have all been absolutely brilliant with me.

“There is always speculation but I never look too far ahead. All I’m focusing on at the moment is the final – it’s the biggest game of my life so far.”
