New loan signing Jimmy Dunne reveals his gut instinct made move to Hearts an easy decision

Jimmy Dunne has revealed that once he heard Hearts were interested in him, it was a simple decision to follow his instincts and move to Tynecastle.

The 20-year-old defender has signed an initial six-month loan deal from Premier League side Burnley and although he sought the opinion of others, he always had a feeling that Hearts was the right fit for him.

Speaking to HeartsTV, Jimmy said: “I did ask a lot of people about it but to be honest, once I heard ‘Hearts’ I kind of went with my gut. I kind of knew this was going to be a good opportunity for me.

“It’s a massive club, playing in a big league. If I do well here then it’s a great chance for me.

“I know it’s a very competitive league and this season’s its been getting a lot of attention because of the players and managers that are coming in.

“I know that Hearts have been off to a great start and they’re going to look to continue that run, so I just want to be a part of that.

“It feels amazing to be here. I think I underestimated how big of a club Hearts actually is.

“I’ve had a very welcoming start, I’ve learned a little bit about the history of the club already and got to meet everybody so it’s been good so far.”
