Juanma loan move

31st August 2016

Juanma joins Spanish side UCAM Murcia on loan.

Juanma Delgado has joined Spanish side UCAM Murcia on season-long loan, subject to international clearance.

The Spanish striker joins the Segunda Division side on loan until June 30th, having spent one season at Tynecastle.

The 25-year-old notched up 13 goals in all competitions in a maroon shirt last season as he helped Hearts to a third-place finish in the club’s return to the Ladbrokes Premiership.

Head Coach Robbie Neilson said:

“We have brought in a number of strikers over the course of the summer months, so needless to say there is a great deal of competition up front.

“Juanma has expressed a desire to play regular first team football, so we decided a loan move would be the best solution for both parties.

“Hopefully this will enable him to get plenty of game time under his belt over the course of the season.”
