"He now takes on a new stature and I believe that will equip him no problem for playing in the Premiership, if that's where he chooses to go."

Brown has established himself as one of the hottest properties in Scottish football with his dynamic performances this season.

"The choice will be down to Scott and, of course, whether something is suitable for Hibs," added McLeish.

Hibs manager John Collins was glad to see Brown withdraw a transfer request in January but has said he expects the midfielder to leave in the summer.
