Kastaneer completes loan switch to Jambos

1st February 2021

Hearts have completed the loan signing of Coventry City winger Gervane Kastaneer, subject to international clearance.

The Dutch-born Curacao international, who boasts Dutch top league and English Championship experience, has joined Robbie Neilson’s side until the end of the season.

24-year-old Gervane travelled to Edinburgh over the weekend and spent today training with his new teammates at the club’s training base at Oriam.

Speaking to the Official Hearts website, Robbie said: “I’m pleased that we’ve been able to get Gervane signed up so quickly.

“He’s got a great pedigree, having played top flight football in Holland and in the English Championship and also at a big German club in Kaiserslautern.

“There’s strength in his play, he’s physically imposing but is pacey and very direct.

“The injury to Josh Ginnelly was a blow but with Gervane here we’re now equipped once again on the wings and I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do as we push towards the title.”
