Csaba Laszlo tonight welcomed the news that Andrew Driver is to remain in maroon for the next five years.
The flying winger put pen to paper on a new five year deal tonight, much to the delight of the manager.
"This is very good news," he said. "I am happy that Andrew is going to stay at Hearts. We want all our very good young players to remain at the club.
"I know Andrew will work very hard and make sure he continues to push forward and be very successful for himself but also very importantly for the team."
The man of the moment was equally delighted, telling Hearts.TV in an exclusive interview at Tynecastle, "I am obviously delighted to the formalities out the way and concentrate on my foot ball.
"We've been negotiating for a while and now I just want to get on the pitch and show the people who had faith in me that I am worth it.
"Hopefully it shows I am doing something right. It is all about improvement now. I can settle down and not worry about anything else.
"It takes out the transfer rumours and now I can concentrate 100% on improving my game and giving 100% for Hearts."
