Haring commits to Hearts

3rd May 2019

Peter Haring has committed his future to Hearts by signing a contract extension.

The Austrian’s new deal will keep him at Tynecastle until the summer of 2022.

25-year-old Peter has been a massive hit since arriving in Gorgie during the 2018 summer transfer window.

Originally deployed in the heart of the defence, the former SV Ried man has been a revelation in the centre of the park after manager Craig Levein switched him into midfield.

He’s made 36 appearances in a maroon jersey this season, despite missing seven weeks through injury.

With seven goals to his name, Peter has a 79% passing accuracy while he averages five interceptions per game and is successful with 82% of his dribbles with the ball.

Meanwhile, Kevin Silva has joined Toronto FC on loan.

The American goalkeeper moves to the MLS side on a three-month deal.
