Dexter Lembikisa admits he can’t wait to get started after joining the Jambos on loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers until the end of the season.
The 20-year-old right-back, who has been capped seven times for Jamaica, spent the first half of the season on loan at Rotherham United, where he featured 27 times, scoring once, in a victory over Norwich City.
Now, Dexter makes the move north and will be eligible for a potential debut in the Scottish Cup against The Spartans next weekend.
Speaking to Hearts TV, Lembikisa said:
“It feels good to be here. Hearts are a massive club and they’re doing very well at the moment. Sitting third in the table at the moment, so it’s definitely attractive to come and play here for such a good team.
“I’ve managed to do a little bit of research and I’ve heard the fans are really good, but it’s a big club so I’m just happy to be here.
“I like being in 1 v 1’s. I’m a strong defender in those situations, but I also like to attack. I’m quite athletic and I’ve got plenty of pace and power.
“I’m fairly new to the Jamaica squad. But I’ve played a few games in the Gold Cup and in the Nations League, but it’s been a really good experience to go and play for my country.
“I’m ready to go and play now. So, I’m definitely looking forward to that one."
