Hearts are close to completing the loan signing of Liverpool attacking midfielder Ben Woodburn.

The Welsh international was on the bench for Liverpool during their opening English Premier League match against Norwich City last Friday. Anfield manager Jurgen Klopp has been impressed by Woodburn in pre-season but another loan beckons. His current deal in Merseyside expires next summer.

Woodburn has previously spent time on loan at Sheffield United, Oxford United and most recently Blackpool. Talks to bring the midfielder to the Scottish Premiership are ongoing and ‘almost done.’

The final details are being finalised ahead of the transfer but for now Woodburn remains a Liverpool player. Hearts host Aberdeen at Tynecastle this Sunday.

Manager Robbie Neilson is a big fan of Woodburn, who has trained with the Liverpool first-team this week. Hearts are in discussions with other players about moves to Gorgie before the end of the transfer window. Australian midfielder Cameron Devlin is due to arrive this month from Newcastle Jets.
