Hearts flop Malaury Martin is set to leave the Jambos when his contract ends – with his deal bizarrely ending in November, according to a report.

The Edinburgh Evening News reports that the Tynecastle dud agreed to shorten his deal in January by several months to facilitate a move away from Gorgie but it ultimately fell through.

After failing to play a single minute since Craig Levein replaced Ian Cathro almost two years ago, Martin will depart in six months time.

The Frenchman spent the first half of the season on loan at Dunfermline but failed to win an extended deal at East End Park.

Martin has only managed a total 0f 21 games for the Jambos and it seems unlikely he’ll add to that total before his contract comes to an end in November.

With his contract ending in November, Martin will need to either negotiate an exit before the transfer window closes or be stuck as a free agent until January.

The Jambos likely won’t want to keep him around at Tynecastle any longer than needed so an early exit seems on the cards as Levein strengthens his squad ahead of the new campaign.
