One of Scottish football's brightest young talents, 21-year-old John already has a wealth of Premiership experience and has been a regular at the Hearts of the maroon defence since joining in January, 2016.
Having amassed over 70 competitive appearances for Dundee United, the highly rated central defender joined Hearts in the January transfer window of 2016.
He has gone on to become a first-team star with the Jambos, racking up over half a century of appearances despite missing the second half of the 2016/17 campaign with a serious injury.
Raised in the Aberdeenshire village of Luthermuir, John spent his early years at Brechin City before joining the United Academy setup. His brother, Harry, is a fellow defender who currently plays for Stoke City.
Despite his young age, John quickly established himself in the Hearts first team and is now one of the club's most consistent performers. Strong, quick and composed, he is also very assured in possession and often proves to be a key attacking outlet who initiates Hearts' forays into the final third.
He is currently closing in on a century of competitive appearances for the boys in maroon.
