Clevid Dikamona will remain at Tynecastle next season after the club took up the option to extend his contract by a year.

The 28-year-old joined Hearts in September 2018 and has gone on to become a popular figure with the Jambos’ support thanks to his solid defensive displays.

He’s made 21 appearances in a maroon shirt this season and scored his first goal against St Mirren last month.

Speaking to the Official Hearts website about the contract extension, Clevid said: “I’m very happy because I have another year to show that I can bring something to this team.

“Of course, I have enjoyed my time at Hearts so far. Every year, since I started playing football, I have aimed to play at a higher level and now I am at a big club in Hearts.

“We are playing for the top spots in the league, Europe and a cup final and I hope that next season we can play for even more.

“It’s the first time I’ve had the opportunity to play in two semi finals in one season so I am really enjoying it here.

“I think that if I am popular with the fans then it is because I try to give everything on the pitch.

“The fans recognise that I give everything that I have and I am very happy for that.

“I want to say thank you to them, and I will just keep going and give everything that I have."
