New Hibs Head Coach Alan Stubbs has revealed his frustration at the lack of new arrivals at the club and has admitted he’s waiting for an answer from some players he’s keen to sign.
Speaking to Sky Sports News the Liverpudlian said: “We have actually made contact with a few players and there are offers on the table.
‘For me now it`s the most frustrating part of it now because we`re waiting for answers, whether it`s going to be a yes or a no.
“Unfortunately, it`s out of my hands. I just hope they are impressed by the club, the stadium, the facilities at the training ground, my vision for the football club to move forward and most importantly being successful.”
Stubbs was also questioned on whether he was under pressure to deliver immediate promotion following Hibs relegation to the Championship however he believes if the players follow his guidance, success in a division also including Rangers and Hearts is not impossible.
He said: “I think the pressure comes from me because I want to set the highest standards I possibly can at the club and if I do that and the players do that then the chances of success become greater.
“It`s all about us lifting the levels which weren`t reached last season. It`s fair to say they probably dipped below a certain standard and it`s about us putting things right.
“From what I`ve seen in the early part of my tenure here is that the players are on board with what I want to do and how I want to play. That`s all I can ask, and with the addition of a few new signings, I`m sure we`re going to have a really positive start to the season.
“It`s a great opportunity for me, it`s a fantastic club, the facilities at the training ground are all geared to be in the Premiership and it is my intention and the player`s intention to get back there as soon as possible.’
