Robbie Neilson continues to boost his squad ahead of Hearts’ return to the Ladbrokes Premiership with the addition of Juanma Delgado.
The Spanish striker has penned a three-year deal at the club and, subject to international clearance, will battle it out for a spot leading the Tynecastle attack.
24-year-old Juanma joined his teammates for pre-season training this afternoon, and head coach Robbie was happy to get the 6ft 2" attacker on board.
Speaking exclusively to Hearts News, Robbie said: “I’m delighted to get him. We spent a lot of time over the summer speaking to Juanma and meeting him. I’m pleased to get it done.
“We thought it was going to get done a few weeks ago and we had some issues with the contractual situation in Greece, but we finally got it over the line. Craig and Clive, Juanma’s agent, did a lot of work on it.
“He’ll be a big asset for us. He brings physicality and he’ll hopefully bring goals as well. He ‘s a good player, technically very good, great in the air, and has good link-up play. And he’s a great character, so I’m pleased to get him.”
