Hearts complete deal for Naismith

Thursday 18th January 2018

Heart of Midlothian have completed the loan signing of Steven Naismith on a deal until the end of the season.

The Scotland internationalist makes the move to Tynecastle from Norwich City, having previously played for Kilmarnock, Rangers and Everton.

Naismith, 31, could make his debut in Sunday's Scottish Cup fourth-round tie against city rivals Hibernian, with Hearts' next match in the Ladbrokes Premiership away to Hamilton Accies on Wednesday January 24.

Manager Craig Levein told the club website: "It’s a bit of a coup to bring somebody in of Steven’s quality, not just in a footballing sense but as a person as well.

“I think he’ll be a huge player in the dressing room and a great example to the rest of the team. On top of that, he’s a fantastically talented football player."
