Hearts Football Academy graduates Marc Leonard and Harry Cochrane have signed professional deals with the club.
The duo, standouts at U17s level, have penned three-year deals as they make their first foray into the professional ranks.
Both will join Jon Daly’s U20s side full-time this coming season after the midfielders impressed at youth level, which included selection for Scotland’s Victory Shield squad.
The pair are joined by fellow graduates Chris Hamilton, Dean Ritchie, Euan Henderson, Jay Sandison, Anthony McDonald and Connor Smith in Daly’s Development League squad, a club record influx of Academy players into the full-time set up.
