First Team

I'm delighted to be here

Liam Boyce insists he couldn't let the opportunity to join Hearts pass him by after putting pen to paper on a three-and-a-half-year deal at Tynecastle.

The Northern Ireland international is no stranger to Scottish football, having spent several seasons at Ross County before moving south to Burton Albion. He's now ready to hit the ground running should he be called upon in tomorrow afternoon's Ladbrokes Premiership match against Rangers.

"This is a move that could have happened a couple of times before but I obviously ended up in England. When the opportunity presented itself again I couldn't see myself going anywhere else and I'm buzzing to be here," said Liam.

"This is an absolutely massive club, there's potential here and having met the manager I've got a good idea of what he's like. This is a great opportunity and hopefully we can get a couple of wins on board and build something special here.

"I obvioiusly know Michael Smith and Conor Washington well from the Northern Ireland setup, they've been texting me non-stop, they're great lads and I'm looking forward to getting started now."
