Hearts have completed the pre-contract signing of midfielder Olly Lee.

The 26-year-old has agreed to move to Tynecastle and will join the Jambos on a three-year-deal.

Olly moves north having helped Luton Town secure promotion from League Two in England, where he scored seven goals in 43 appearances this season, including the EFL’s Goal of the Season Award for a 70-yard strike against Cambridge United.

He began his career at Premier League side West Ham United, enjoying loan spells at Dagenham & Redbridge and Gillingham before penning a permanent deal with Barnet.

A move to Birmingham City soon followed, and after a short spell at Plymouth Argyle he then signed for Luton, where he made 123 appearances for the Hatters over three seasons.

Olly will join his new team-mates ahead of the start of the 2018/19 season upon expiration of his contract at Luton.
