Angus Beith has become the latest young star to commit his immediate future to the club after penning a contract extension.
The 20-year-old midfielder has signed a new one-year deal, which will keep him at Tynecastle until May 2017.
Scotland U19 cap Angus missed the first few months of the season after undergoing surgery on an injured hip, but has since returned to become a mainstay of Jon Daly’s U20s side, and has captained the Wee Jambos to the Final of the Little Big Shot Youth Cup.
Head coach Robbie Neilson knows there’s no questioning Angus’ ability, and has urged him to stake a claim for a place in his first team.
Speaking to Hearts News, Robbie said: “I’m happy to get Angus signed up for another year because he has the potential to be a top player.
“He’s talented and is a continual stand-out for the U20s, and had it not been for his unfortunate injury in the summer then he may have been pushing to be in the first team by this point.
“His contract is a reward for his hard work but it’s now up to him to continue his development and kick on next season in the first-team environment.”
