Sandilands signs pro contract

9th September 2021

The club is delighted to announce that youngster Callum Sandilands has today signed his first pro-contract with Hearts.

The promising midfielder, who turned 16 this week, joins the Jambos having left Rangers this summer.

Callum put pen to paper after impressing U18s Manager John Rankin during his trial period.

Speaking as Callum signed on the dotted line at Tynecastle, John said:

“Callum first came in on trial back in June and really impressed us. He’s a goalscoring midfielder who brings so much energy to the team and he can also play in a number of positions across midfield.

“He’s got good vision and technical ability and, equally as important, has a fantastic attitude. I believe Hearts is the perfect place for him to continue his development and I look forward to seeing him progress over the coming months and years.”
