Hearts midfielder Andy Irving has completed a transfer to German 3. Liga side Türkgücü München.

The Scotland youth midfielder impressed for Hearts over his 55 appearances since arriving back from a loan spell at Falkirk in 2019. Manager Robbie Neilson was looking to make him a key player upon the Tynecastle side’s return to the cinch Premiership this coming season but he will now move abroad.

Irving is the second Hearts academy product to have a go at foreign football in recent times, Anthony McDonald moving to Spain with Cordoba prior to his Inverness move.

A Hearts statement reads: “Andrew Irving has left Hearts to complete a move to Türkgücü München. The 21-year-old’s Tynecastle contract expired earlier this month, and he has now agreed terms with the German third tier side.

“Under FIFA rules, Hearts will receive an undisclosed amount in training compensation.  The club wishes Andrew the best of luck with the next chapter of his career.”
