Hearts have been linked with a move for a goalkeeper, former Jambo and current Celtic stopper Craig Gordon.

The 37-year-old’s contract at Celtic Park expires in the summer. It’s been reported that Hearts are keen to bring the veteran keeper back to Gorgie (BBC).

Talks have seemingly been underway for weeks now and it is thought that Celtic were not willing to lose him ‘initially.’

Adding experience

Daniel Stendel currently has three goalkeepers to call upon. Joel Pereira, Colin Doyle and Zdenek Zlamal are all stoppers that the German has to use at present.

It’s believed though that the Jambos boss wants to add experience and Gordon could be that man. The veteran has lost his place in the first-team over the last while and has only made six appearances this term.

Gordon started out at Tynecastle and helped them to their 2006 Scottish Cup success. He moved on from Tynecastle to Sunderland for a deal worth £9 million. It was a then British record for a goalkeeper.

A return could be on the horizon it seems.
