Cammy's contract extension

25 September 2023

Heart of Midlothian Football Club is delighted to confirm that Cammy Devlin’s contract has been extended by a year.


The Australian has proven popular amongst the fans with his all-action displays in the middle of the park and the club has taken up its option to keep him at Tynecastle Park until the summer of 2025.


25-year-old Cammy arrived at Hearts from A-League side Newcastle Jets back in 2021. He’s gone from strength to strength in Gorgie, making 81 appearances and scoring five goals including a double against Rosenborg in this season’s UEFA Europa Conference League qualifiers.


He’s also won international recognition due to his displays with the Jambos, making his senior Australia debut against New Zealand last year before going on to be named in the Socceroos’ squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.


Cammy will now continue to pull on a maroon jersey for the foreseeable, and Head Coach Steven Naismith has spoken of his happiness and getting stability in place for a key member of the squad.


Speaking to the Official Hearts Website, Steven said; “It’s great news that Cammy will be a Hearts player beyond the end of this season.


“It shouldn’t be underestimated how difficult it is for a young player to move to the other side of the world and adapt to a different style of football as well as a different way of life.


“But it’s to Cammy’s credit that he’s done it seamlessly. He gets the club, gets the expectations of playing for Hearts and he thrives on it.


“He’s always improving and I’m excited to see just how far he can push himself, and the team, forward.”


Sporting Director Joe Savage said: “Cammy’s made a huge impact since we brought him to the club so it really was a no-brainer to activate our year’s option on his contract.


“He never gives anything less than 100% on the pitch, and his performances for Hearts got him to a World Cup.


“I know he’s a fans’ favourite so I’m sure they’ll be as happy as we are that he will be a Hearts player for even longer.


“Cammy and the club have been good for each other so we’ll sit down in the near future and hopefully open talks about a brand new deal.”
