Scotland manager Alex McLeish believes Scott Brown can be a hit in the Premiership if the 21-year-old midfielder opts for a move to England.
Brown looks sure to add t o his three Scotland caps
The Hibs star is certain to certain to attract a number of offers.
McLeish said: "He's young, he's made a couple of great performances for the national team and he's won a cup final.
"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.
And McLeish handed Brown his first Scotland start - his third cap - in the Euro 2008 defeat against Italy last month.
Both Celtic and Rangers are expected to renew their interest in the player, while Bolton, Middlesbrough and Tottenham have been linked with Brown.
"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.
The Easter Road side did sell Kevin Thomson for £2m in the last transfer window and will expect a larger fee for Brown.
