Ally Roy has penned a contract extension to remain at Tynecastle next season.
The 18-year-old striker has signed a new one-year deal, after impressing the coaching staff with his performances in the Development League.
With two top team outings to his name, Ally has set his sights on pushing himself into the first-team fold.
Speaking to Hearts News, he said: “I’m really happy to sign a year’s extension.
“Hopefully I can progress further if I keep working hard and scoring goals. If that comes along then hopefully I can get a chance in the first team.
“I’ve had a taste of that before and that’s what I’m aiming for again. Hopefully I can get back to that and make it a regular thing.
“It’s a very big year for me coming up.”
