Hearts sign Belgian midfielder

Hearts have completed the signing of Belgian midfielder Arnaud Djoum on a free transfer.

Djoum has signed a short-term contract with the Scottish Premier League club and could feature against Celitc on Saturday.

“It’s a big step for me, this is a big club with a lot of tradition and I hope to be successful here. I was very impressed by the facilities here and everyone has been very welcoming,” Djoum told Hearts TV.

“I’m an aggressive midfield player with good technical ability. I have a lot of experience; I won a title last year and I have played in several countries and adapted to different styles of football. I hope this experience can enable me to bring something to the team.

“I’ve heard all about Tynecastle and I can’t wait to see this place full of fans. I know that the fans here are some of the best in Scotland so I’m excited to experience it.”

Djoum has signed a deal that will keep him at Hearts until January, but the deal could be extended.

“I’m pleased to get Arnaud in. He’s came in and he’s a good player with a good pedigree. He fitted in well with the group and he’ll be a great asset to us,” Hearts coach Robbie Neilson told his club’s official website.

“He’s on a deal until January, so we can take a look at him and then see about extending it further, but I’m pleased to get him in the door.

“He’s got power. He’s a good football player. He played in Belgium, Holland, Turkey and [for] the top team in the top league in Poland, so he’s got great experience. He’s got a lot of drive in midfield and energy, which is something that we need.”
