Shay Logan won’t sign for Hearts permanently as manager Robbie Neilson says the former Brentford star can still play at the highest level.

The right-back arrived on loan from Aberdeen in the winter transfer window, having been at Pittodrie since 2014 after a notable spell with Brentford. Now 33 years of age, Logan played five Scottish Championship matches as the Tynecastle club won the division.

Neilson says Logan won’t play in Edinburgh when Hearts return to the Scottish Premiership, but the former Brentford star could still feature at that level (EEN): “Shay has been great and I’m sure he will get a team out there somewhere. I think he can still play in the Premiership no problem at all.

“We just felt that we already have Michael Smith in that position. He has been playing in the middle but we are going to recruit in the centre-back area, so Michael will push back out to his favoured position on the right.”
