Hearts’ move for Liverpool attacking midfielder Ben Woodburn ‘could see developments over the next 24 to 48 hours’ (STV).

The 21-year-old is in the final year of his contract at Liverpool and has worked his way back into Jurgen Klopp’s plans at Anfield. Woodburn was named on the bench in a 3-0 Liverpool win over Norwich City during the English Premier League’s opening weekend.

Reports earlier on Tuesday had indicated that Hearts were keen on bringing the Welsh international to the Scottish Premiership. New updates suggest talks have started between Hearts and Liverpool, with things to perhaps become clearer on Wednesday or Thursday at the latest.

Neilson has already added Beni Baningime to his midfield while Australian Cameron Devlin is also due to arrive this month.

 

Hearts take on Aberdeen this weekend at Tynecastle in the Premiership. ‘The Jambos’ had won six games on the bounce prior to Sunday’s Premier Sports Cup last 16 defeat to Celtic.
