Gavin Reilly has joined Championship side Dunfermline Athletic on a season-long loan.
The 23-year-old striker will spend the 2016/17 campaign at the League One champions in an effort to get regular first-team football under his belt.
Head coach Robbie Neilson believes the move will be another crucial step in Gavin’s development.
Speaking to Hearts News, he said: “It’s a good move for Gavin. Dunfermline are a big club and will still be on a high after winning League One.
“It’s a chance for Gavin to play regularly and continue his development in an extremely competitive environment.
“Hopefully he’ll come back an even better player.”
