Anthony McDonald has become the latest Hearts starlet to pledge his future to the club.

The tricky midfielder has followed in the footsteps of teammate Harry Cochrane by signing a new three-year deal, which will keep him at Tynecastle until 2021.

17-year-old Anthony signed his first professional contract last summer and, after a period out due to inury, was handed his first-team debut in December 2017 when he started in the 2-0 home win over Dundee, a match in which he set up both goals.

He’s gone on to make 11 top team appearances to date, and has been rewarded for his form with a new deal.
