Matt Macey left Arsenal in January 2021, signing for Hibs on short deal that was then extended until 2023.

While he initially impressed, the S*n now report that he will leave the club this summer after Hibs purchased David Marshall.

The Scotland international was signed on a free transfer after being released by QPR and Macey is not keen to play second fiddle.

St Johnstone are said to be interested in signing the 27-year-old who admitted Kieran Tierney helped him decide on his move to Scotland.

“I spoke to Kieran Tierney at length about the opportunity to come to Hibs, about Scottish football and the country in general,” Macey admitted.

“Kieran was really positive about every aspect of it, whether it was the club or Edinburgh itself.

“As I said, I was already keen to come but it was good to hear him talk so enthusiastically about it all. He backed up the gut feeling I had.

“Kieran’s someone I have a lot of time for and he’s probably one of the first names on the team-sheet – if not the first – at Arsenal just now.”

Luton Town, however, are said to be favourites to land the former Arsenal shotstopper. Macey spent time on loan with the Hatters during his time with Arsenal.

Macey played just twice for Arsenal after signing for the club from Bristol Rovers for £126,000 in 2013.

He is currently valued at around £383,000.
