Hearts have been left wanting in front of goal this term- but they might just have found a goalscorer in Liam Boyce.

The Northern Irish international has been unveiled as Hearts’ third signing of the window. He joins the Jambos from Burton Albion on a three-and-a-half year deal.

It’s a big signing for Daniel Stendel as he looks to get goals into the Premiership’s current bottom side. Their top scorer in all competitions is centre-back Craig Halkett with five strikes.

In the league it’s Ryotaro Meshino with three. Bringing in someone who has scored regularly everywhere he’s been should provide the Tynecastle outfit with a focal point up top.

This season, Boyce has netted 14 times in 33 matches. In total, he scored 31 in 94 for Burton. Initially though, the striker started out with Cliftonville in his homeland, scoring 70 in 130 appearances.

It earned him a move to Ross County where he really caught the eye. Boyce scored 55 goals in 115 appearances for Hearts’ current bottom six rivals.

It’s a big signing by Hearts and some fans are delighted with the capture of Boyce.
