Hearts have today completed the signing of Malaury Martin on a three-and-a-half-year deal.
The 28-year-old French midfielder joins Hearts after leaving Norwegian top-flight side Lillestrom following the expiration of his contract on January 1st. He has signed a deal that will keep him at Tynecastle until May 2020.
The Frenchman, who has captained France at U17, U19 and U21 level, began his career at Monaco before enjoying spells with the likes of Blackpool, Middlesbrough and Swiss side Lausanne. He has since played for Norwegian top division sides Sandnes Ulf and Lillestrom, scoring 11 goals in 45 league appearances for the latter.
