Defender Tim Clancy is reportedly set to sign for Hibernian after rejecting a new contract at Motherwell.

The Irishman, who joined Motherwell in August, turned down a two-year deal and the prospect of Champions League football.

Motherwell manager Stuart McCall told the Scottish Daily Express: "Tim Clancy has told me he will be moving on. He has been offered a far better deal from elsewhere."

He added: "We took him from Kilmarnock reserves but in fairness to Tim it has worked both ways. We gave him a platform but he did really well for us.

"If it were £100-a-week I think he would have stayed because he has enjoyed himself but if he can substantially increase his money then I don't blame the lad at all."

McCall is waiting for answers from central midfield pair Keith Lasley and Steve Jennings after they were offered two-year deals.

McCall said: "Everybody has enjoyed themselves but I know there is also the financial side of things and we have had to cut £200,000 off our budget, which is £4,000-a-week.

"People can get a lot more elsewhere and they are going to have to look after themselves."
