Hearts transfer target Steven Naismith has trained with Craig Levein’s side as they prepare for this weekend’s Betfred Cup clash with Dundee United – as Hearts fans wait for news on the forward’s move to Tynecastle.
Naisy has spent much of the last two seasons on loan in Edinburgh and is a free agent following his release by Norwich City earlier this summer – but joined the Hearts squad at Oriam yesterday, as pictured by Football Scotland.
Hearts have been in talks with the former Rangers and Everton star for a number of months and it looks a though things may be nearing a conclusion.
The attacker spent the final months of last season on the sidelines after undergoing knee surgery but looks set to be fit for a return to action imminently.
Hearts face Dundee United on Friday night at Tynecastle before travelling to take on Cowdenbeath on Tuesay night.
Either way, it seems unlikely Naismith would be involved in either game but getting his future sorted out would come as a huge boost to Hearts before the league campaign gets underway next month.
