Morgaro Gomis leaves Hearts | Billy King joins ICT on loan

Hearts can confirm that Morgaro Gomis has left the club, whilst Billy King has joined Inverness CT on a season-long loan.

Morgaro leaves Hearts to join up with Malaysian Super League side Kelantan. He made a total of 58 appearances for the Jambos. 

Meanwhile, Billy will link up with Inverness CT until the end of the 2016/17 campaign. Both players spent the latter part of last season on loan at Motherwell and Rangers respectively.

Speaking to heartsfc.co.uk, Head Coach Robbie Neilson said:

“I would like to thank Morgaro for his services to the club. He was instrumental in our Championship winning campaign during his first season here.

“He leaves the club in search of more regular game time, which is something I can fully understand. Everyone here wishes him all the best in the future.”   

Commenting on Billy's loan move to the Highlands, Robbie said: 

“I believe this is a great move for Billy and will enable him to kick on and get some regular football under his belt.

“He returned from his loan at Rangers earlier this summer and, having spoken to him, he expressed a desire to get as much game time as possible.

“There is a lot of competition for places here and I feel Billy will stand a better chance of playing regularly by going back out on loan.

“I’m sure it will be of great benefit to him both in the short and long term. “
