New striker Osman Sow happy with his lot at Tynecastle, thanks to team spirit in the camp.

Osman Sow has revealed he's already settled into life at Hearts, thanks to the close-knit first-team squad.

The big Swedish striker, who officially joined the club this morning, believes Robbie Neilson's lads - as well as those behind the scenes - have made him feel welcome at Tynecastle.

Speaking exclusively to Hearts News, Osman said: "I'm happy to have signed for Hearts. It's a massive club which should be in the top flight.

"There's a good bunch of lads here and everybody is working hard. The staff have been brilliant so I'm happy.

"I'm happy to play my football here and I can't wait to do it as soon as possible."

Having netted in each of his pre-season friendly appearances, including an ice-cool finish past Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Caballero, Osman is relishing running out in front of packed houses in Gorgie this campaign.

"Manchester City was a good game to play in and it's always fun to play against big teams," he said. "I'm happy and I'm looking forward to the season starting.

"It's a big thing to play in front of so many fans and I've heard a lot of good things about the supporters here.

"It's a tough start to the season but it's good, it gets you on your feet. If we work hard then we can get some good results, and if I work hard then hopefully I'll score a lot of goals in Scotland."
