Hearts sign Loïc Damour

9th August 2019

Hearts have completed the signing of midfielder Loïc Damour, subject to international clearance.

The Frenchman has penned a four-year deal at Tynecastle after leaving English Championship side Cardiff City and could be available for selection against Ross County tomorrow, should the relevant clearance be received.
 
The 28-year-old started his professional career at French outfit Strasbourg in 2008, where he made 47 appearances before moving to Boulogne in 2011.
 
He then spent two years in Belgium where he turned out for RWDM Brussels and White Star Bruxelles, before returning to France with Frejus Saint-Raphael and Bourg-en-Bresse Peronnas.
 
In 2017, he joined Cardiff City and helped them gain promotion to the Premier League, making a total of 32 appearances that season.
 
The defensive-midfielder has been capped at every youth level for France from U16s up to U20s, where he featured alongside the likes of Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly and current Arsenal star Alexandre Lacazette.
