Olly: Here to win

16th May 2018

Olly Lee comes to Hearts determined to fire the Jambos up the table and lift some silverware.

Olly Lee believes his winning mentality will help him to make an impact at Hearts.

The 26-year-old midfielder has agreed a pre-contract move from Luton Town and will join the Jambos ahead of the 2018/19 season on a three-year deal.

Olly arrives north of the border with a good pedigree, having helped Luton gain automatic promotion from League Two in England, and he wants to carry that winning feeling into next season.

Speaking to HeartsTV, he said: “I’m delighted to be a Hearts player. This is a massive club and I’ve known for a couple of weeks that this is potentially happening so to finally get it done is brilliant.

“It’s a huge club. I saw the training ground and the stadium here is brilliant. To come to the (Hibs) game and see the atmosphere, the fans really sold it for me.

“Craig Levein has been massive, he’s been very enthusiastic about next season and I can’t wait to get started.

“He’s been brilliant. He’s the key reason for selling the club to me. We’re just looking to kick on.

“Obviously they said 6th isn’t the best finish for Hearts but we’ll be for top four and hopefully to win something.

“That’s why I’ve came here; I’m used to winning games and I’m looking forward to doing that in the SPFL now.”

Olly’s interview is available to watch in full on Hearts TV.
