Hearts completed the permanent signing of Beni from Everton in July 2021.

The 22-year-old moved to Tynecastle Park on a 3-year-deal for an undisclosed fee.

Highly-rated Beni joined the Jambos after making quite an impact with the Goodison Park side’s academy teams, leading to appearances in the Premier League.

Born in the DR Congo, Beni entered the Toffee’s youth system aged 9. Twice a Premier League 2 winner with Everton’s U23s, he made his first team debut in a League Cup encounter against Chelsea in 2017 and shortly followed it up with a Premier League debut against Leicester City.

He featured 12 times for Everton’s first team and enjoyed loan spells with Wigan Athletic and Derby County.
