Griffiths set for talks on future

6 May 2013

Leigh Griffiths will meet with Wolves manager Dean Saunders next Thursday to see where his future lies.

The Hibernian striker, on loan from the midlands club, has scored 27 goals this season to win the PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year award, while his parent club suffered a second straight relegation, sealed with a 2-0 final-day defeat at Brighton on Saturday.

"I go to speak to the Wolves manager next Thursday and see what his plans are for next season," Griffiths told Press Association Sport.

"I don't know what those talks holds but I know I will go down there and return in high spirits. The manager will want to bring in his own players and if I am part of his plans then great but if not then obviously I will need to see what happens.

"I will come back up here and I will have some important games to play for Hibs."

The boyhood Hibees fan is looking to reach the 30-mark and finish off the season with a William Hill Scottish Cup final win over Celtic at Hampden later in the month.

"I am absolutely delighted," he added. "It has capped off a dream season for me. I was very nervous listening to the nominations and when my name got called out my stomach kind of fell out of me but I am delighted to get the award.

"I was handed the number nine shirt, something I had been dreaming about since I was a little boy and I have scored 27 goals and now I want to get 30 and try to win the Scottish Cup.

"It is going to be a hard game. Celtic aren't the champions for no reason, they don't go and beat the world's best team (Barcelona) if you are not a good team yourself but we are capable of beating them.

"We have proved that this season already and hopefully we can do that on the day.''
