Hearts Continue To Pursue Naismith
Written by RockSport on January 17, 2018
Hearts are continuing talks with Norwich City with a view to taking Scotland forward Steven Naismith to Tynecastle on loan.
The 31-year-old still has 18 months to run on his contract at Carrow Road but has been told he can move on.
Hearts boss Craig Levein has made the former Rangers and Kilmarnock striker his top January target.
And he is keen for a deal to be done before Sunday’s Scottish Cup meeting with Edinburgh rivals Hibernian.
Naismith, capped 45 times for Scotland, made three Norwich appearances in August before suffering an ankle injury.
Since returning to fitness he has been unable to force his way into manager Daniel Farke’s plans at the English Championship side.
