First Team

New deal for Paterson

15th July 2014

Callum Paterson commits future to Hearts with new three-year deal.

Callum Paterson has become the latest star to pledge his future to the club after agreeing a new three-year contract.

The Scotland U21 cap has committed himself to the Jam Tarts until 2017 and handed Robbie Neilson a huge boost heading into the start of the 2014-15 Championship campaign.

Callum, a stand-out at right-back last season, joins Sam Nicholson and Gary Oliver in penning new deals at Tynecastle this summer.

One of Scottish football's hottest properties, Callum burst onto the first-team scene in 2012 and to date has featured over 60 times in a maroon shirt, scoring 15 goals in the process.

His versatility saw him deployed in a variety of positions last season, but it was at full-back that he demonstrated the commanding runs and aerial prowess that has made him a fans favourite, along with three derby goals against Hibs.
