Pollock signs new deal

21 October 2022

The talented 18-year-old has penned a three-year deal, keeping him at Tynecastle Park until 2025.

The midfielder has been a standout for Hearts’ B team this season as they play their inaugural campaign in the Lowland League and made his first appearances for Scotland U19s last month.

He made his first team debut on the penultimate day of the 2020/21 Championship-winning season and has gone on to make six top team appearances, scoring one goal.

Regularly training with the first team squad, Finlay will call Hearts his home for the foreseeable future as he aims to stake a place in Robbie Neilson’s squad.

Speaking to the Official Hearts Website, the manager said; “I’m delighted that Finlay has signed a new contract.

“He’s an extremely talented young player and has impressed both in training and for the B Team.

“I’ve no doubt he’ll become an important player for us. The onus is on him to keep on working hard and showing everyone just how good he is.”

Sporting Director Joe Savage said: “It’s important to get the futures of your most promising young players secured, and Finlay most certainly falls into that category, so I’m very happy that we’ve managed to get it all sorted.

“He’s the benchmark for all of our young players coming through. He’s got great ability and also a great attitude. It’s a testament to our Academy that we can produce prospects like Finlay.

“He’s a Hearts fan and this means a lot to him, so I’m certain that, when the time comes, our supporters are going to enjoy watching him pulling on the maroon jersey and giving his all on the pitch.”
