Leigh Griffiths was set to return to Wolverhampton Wanderers last week to discuss his future following a year on loan with Hibernian.
The 22-year-old striker has impressed many since his move to the Scottish Premier League.
He’s won the PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year this season and has scored 28 goals in 41 appearances this season and still has three games to play including the Scottish FA Cup final against Celtic.
Griffiths is out-of-contract at Molinuex at the end of the season, however Wolves do have a one year option on the forward and former boss Dean Saunders had previously implied that he intended to take it.
But following Saunders sacking the striker has now been left in limbo.
‘I don’t know what’s going on with Wolves at the minute and I won’t know until there is a new manager appointed.
‘God knows how long that will take but hopefully it is sorted sooner rather than later. If it’s done before the cup final, maybe the new man can come up and watch me play.’ Griffiths told Sky Sports.
When pushed on which side he would rather be with next season, English third tier Wolves or Scottish top flight Hibs, he more than implied that he would jump at the chance to stay in Scotland.
He continued: ‘Do I want to go back down to England and set a few things straight? You can never say never. If Wolves want to take that option of another year on my contract, then I will go back down there.
‘But it’s out of my hands. It’s down to Wolves and Hibs and whether they can come to an agreement. If they can, then people know it would just be a case of me signing on the dotted line and people know I will do that.’
