Jaden Ferguson joins Hearts B

18 July 2022

The 19-year-old striker joins Hearts' B side after impressing in a trial period at Riccarton under the watch of Steven Naismith.

The promising attacker previously had a lengthy spell in the academy at Celtic, before an injury issue forced him to drop down the leagues to Dundee junior side Lochee United.

His quality shone through, and he now returns to the professional ranks as he readies himself for Hearts' maiden Lowland League campaign. 

Hearts B Head Coach Steven Naismith said: “Jaden’s got real instincts as a forward. He has a sharpness in the box, along with being a really good finisher.

He’s very powerful and got a lot qualities suited to leading the line. That’s why he’s earned this contract. It didn’t play out at Celtic the way Jaden hoped, but I think he’s learned a lot. He’s shown a great attitude along with a willingness to get better and improve."
Jaden Ferguson said: “I’m over the moon to get this done. I was out of the game for a long time and it’s great to be back in full-time football.
“Naisy’s been excellent with me. I know I’m going to learn a lot with him. The lads have all been top notch with me.
