Since moving to Hull City last summer, David Milinkovic hasn’t got a look in. That’s why former loan club Hearts should make a move to bring him back to Tynecastle.

The-ex Genoa wideman penned a three-year deal with Nigel Adkins’ side last summer. He only played 237 minutes in what has been a season to forget for the former Hearts loanee.

With creativity needed at Tynecastle, and Milinkovic on the hunt for first team football, the Jambos should enquire about a potential move for their former loan star.

Milinkovic needs a move after Hull disaster

Its been a horrific first season in England for the French-Serbian winger. His attitude and application has been called into question in a season where the Tigers needed first-team players to step up to the mark.

The French-Serbian would clearly be coming with baggage and next to no confidence, but how Hearts could be doing with a player like Milinkovic.

He became a cult-hero in his season-long loan spell at Tynecastle last year. The winger has the ability to put fear in his full-back opponents with his direct style of play and his end quality wasn’t bad either. He scored six goals notched five assists in the league during the 2017/18 campaign.

Craig Levein hasn’t been blessed with wide options this year and Milinkovic would certainly be a boost. A chance to recapture form in a place he knows well could be beneficially for both him and Hearts.

If he does move, it’ll likely be a loan one. Still, on this basis, Hearts shouldn’t pass up the chance to sign him should it present itself this summer.
