Demi returns

28th August 2018

Demetri Mitchell has returned to Hearts on a season-long loan deal, subject to international clearance.

The Manchester United winger will spend the 2018/19 season at Tynecastle Park after today completing a loan move.

The 21-year-old was a hugely popular figure at Hearts last season, impressing in his nine appearances before injury saw him ruled out for two months.

He returned to action before the season’s end, featuring in two of the final three games of the season, including the 2-1 derby win over Hibernian at Tynecastle.

He scored his first senior goal in Hearts colours, a wonderstrike against St Johnstone, which helped the Jambos progress to the quarter-finals of the Scottish Cup.
