Angus Beith has joined Stenhousemuir on an emergency loan.
The 20-year-old midfielder will link up with the League One outfit for 28 days, in order to gain first-team experience.
He will return to Hearts in time for the U20s’ Little Big Shot Youth Cup Final against Motherwell at the end of April.
Speaking to Hearts News, head coach Robbie Neilson said: “It’s a good move for Angus and it will allow him to get valuable game time for a club that is pushing for a play-off spot.
“Angus has got a big year coming up next season, so the more experience he can get under his belt the better.”
