Bobby Zlamal has completed an emergency loan move to St Mirren.

The Czech goalkeeper will spend an initial seven days at the Paisley side after they lost the services of three keepers due to quarantine protocols following a positive Covid-19 test.

Bobby is in line to make his debut this afternoon against Hibs, with games against Celtic and Dundee United to follow.

Speaking to the Official Hearts Website about the loan, manager Robbie Neilson said: “This is purely a move for Bobby’s benefit. He’ll get to play three competitive games in a week, against three sides who have started the season well.

“Our training has been first class so far and the lads are doing really well, however, this is an opportunity for Bobby to get some competitive games under his belt early on.

“It also gives me the chance to assess where he is at this stage of our pre-season. We have three top class keepers at Hearts and I want them to be pushing each other all the way so that we start our campaign in the strongest shape possible.”
