Don Cowie reveals team bonding is going great guns as Jambos ramp up pre-season training in Dublin.

Don Cowie has revealed the arrival of the club’s new signings has given everyone a boost as the Jambos continue their pre-season campaign.

All six summer signings made the journey to Ireland for the first-team’s week-long training camp in Dublin and then Belfast, and the midfield man says that team bonding is key ahead of the start of the new season.

Speaking to HeartsTV in Dublin, Don said: “They’re settling in brilliantly, really good. A few new signings gives everyone a lift when you see them coming through the door. Real quality as well that’s come in.

“It’s exciting. You want to be out there training with them, getting to know them, and they’ve fitted in great.

“I’m looking forward to seeing them hopefully tomorrow night.

“It’s exciting for us, it’s exciting for the fans, because they see that quality coming in – seasoned internationals with plenty of caps for their country – and they want to come and play for Hearts.

“We’re disappointed with the way things went last year but it’s a new season, new start, new faces and we’re looking to get a good start and really kick on.”
