Jake signs new deal

23rd July 2019

Jake Mulraney becomes the latest Hearts star to pledge his future to the club after signing a new contract.

The flying winger has penned a new three-year deal, which will keep him in Gorgie until 2022.

The 23-year-old was a summer 2018 arrival from Inverness Caledonian Thistle and went on to hit a rich vein of form, making 30 appearances last season and scoring one goal.

Speaking to the official Hearts website, Jake admits it took him a while to get going in maroon, but now he’s high on confidence and eager to keep on impressing.

“The gaffer mentioned it to me at the start of the season and I’m just delighted to get it all done now,” he said. “I started last season very slow and as it went on I probably got a little bit worse up until the end of December, early January.

“Then I started to get more involved, started to play a bit more and started to get my confidence back.

“I got into a bit of a rhythm and got games, and it all came good.

“It’s definitely a confidence booster that the manager wanted me here for another three seasons.

“Hopefully I can repay him with some good performances.”
