There are reports of Brentford interest – but Hearts starlet Harry Cochrane will ply his trade at Montrose for now.

The 19-year-old has signed a short-term loan agreement with the League One side as the Jambos look to get more senior experience into his legs.

It comes after reports that Brentford are keeping close watch of the youngster’s situation at Tynecastle (Scottish Sun). Cochrane’s deal in maroon is set to expire next summer.

Hearts want him to commit his future to Hearts by signing a new deal, warding off potential Brentford interest in the process. So far, the teenager has made 33 senior appearances at Tynecastle.

But injury has hampered his progress in recent seasons, spending time at Dunfermline last term before a recall by then-manager Daniel Stendel. He now drops down to League One for more experience with Montrose.

Cochrane burst onto the scene as a 16-year-old, scoring on his debut in stunning fashion as Hearts beat Celtic at Tynecastle.
