As well as seeing off FC Infonet in the Europa League qualifying Hearts have been involved in some ins and out at Tynecastle of late.

Hearts had ‘keeper Danny Amos on trial but he didn’t earn a deal, fellow trialist ‘keeper Viktor Noring (previously of Celtic) did though after his trial spell at Riccarton.

However we did see Jordan McGhee join Middlesbrough on loan.

Robbie Neilson had been looking at Israeli ‘keeper Amos but he’s now moved on after his unsuccessful trial with the boss deciding, despite he sporting the most amazing beard, he wasn’t right for Hearts.

Jack Hamilton, who was in goal for both legs of the first Europa League tie, will be challenged for the no.1 spot by former Lyngby man Noring with the 25-year-old once capped Swedish international, winning that cap in 2011, signing a permanent contract.

The BBC quoted Nielson, after the former Celtic loanee in 2013 (he didn’t play for them) penned his deal, as saying.

‘He has everything we’re looking for. We offered Viktor a contract, so he’s away back to Sweden to speak to his agent and his family and we’re hoping to hear back from him in the next couple of days. We think he can challenge Jack Hamilton for the number one spot and that’s what we want. I want someone to push him on and compete.’

McGhee though will be spending the next season with English Premier League side Middlesbrough.

The Scottish U21 international, who played 28-matches for Hearts last season and has managed 70-matches in total for the Jambos, is expected to be part of the Middlesbrough Development Squad this season with Boro boss Aitor Karanka having the option to make the move permanent.

After this move the 19-year-old took to Twitter to say.

‘Delighted to be given the opportunity at @Boro looking forward to the season ahead.’
