Lennon Thompson has joined the Hearts B Team until the end of the season.
A former product of the Vancouver Whitecaps Academy, the 19-year-old, defensive-minded midfielder impressed during a short trial with the club and will now remain with the Wee Jambos until the end of the season.
Speaking to the Official Hearts Website, B Team head coach Liam Fox said:
“Lennon came on a two-week trial and has shown up really well. So, we as a club have given him the opportunity until the summer to earn himself a long-term deal.
“He has shown a good attitude, and he has some good qualities. He can play in the middle of the park or in defence, so he has some versatility about him. The ball is in his court now to try and force his way into the B Team, but we’re delighted to have him here."
Welcome to Hearts, Lennon!
