Cammy's a Jambo

1st September 2021

Hearts have completed the signing of Australian Olympic international Cammy Devlin.

The midfielder joins for an undisclosed fee from A-League side Newcastle Jets and has penned a three-year-deal with the Jambos.

23-year-old Cammy’s star has shone brightly in the A-League recently, culminating with selection for the national squad in this summer’s Tokyo Olympics.

He worked his way up the ranks with Sutherland Sharks and Western Sydney Wanderers before grabbing his chance with Sydney FC in 2018/19. He featured eight times as they won the A-League Finals Series, reached the national cup final and played in the Asian Champions League.

He moved to Wellington Phoenix the following season, helping them to 3rd spot in the A-League and with it another place in the Finals Series.

Ranking up 50 A-League appearances, Cammy was set for a move to Newcastle Jets however Hearts swooped to make a move for the highly-rated defensive midfielder and brought him to Tynecastle Park.

Speaking to the Official Hearts Website, manager Robbie Neilson said: ‘This one has been a long time in the making but I’m delighted that Cammy is now a Hearts player.

“He was as keen to get over here and joins us as we were to sign him, so already there is a great relationship there.

“He’s a real livewire on the pitch, dynamic with a great engine and he’ll give 100% every time he pulls on the maroon jersey.”

Sporting Director Joe Savage said: “It’s been known for a while that we were trying to get Cammy in but now that day is here, it’s no less exciting.

“He is going to give us something different on the pitch and I think the fans are really going to take to him…when he arrived at Edinburgh Airport the first thing he said was ‘I’m home’ and that says it all about his attitude.

“A big thanks goes to Tony, Cammy’s agent, who has been instrumental in this deal and to all of the staff at the club who have worked non-stop to ensure that this has been a really successful transfer window.”
