Christophe Berra has committed his future to Hearts by signing a contract extension.

The club captain has penned a new deal that will keep him at Tynecastle Park until 2021.

A product of the club’s youth system, Christophe broke into the first team back in 2003 and would go on to lift the Scottish Cup with the Jambos in 2006.

He spent seven years plying his trade in the English Premier League and Championship before returning home to Gorgie in the summer of 2017.

A leader in the heart of defence, Christophe has made a total of 206 appearances in a maroon jersey and has scored eight goals.
