Towering hitman Uche committed to signing a two-year deal at Tynecastle last summer after the Jambos beat off stiff competition from sides north and south of the border.
London-born Uche, who stands at 6ft 4’ tall, joined Reading’s academy system in 2010 and in his first full season scored 28 goals in 28 games.
That was enough for Watford to pay an undisclosed fee for his services in 2013 and he spent three years at Vicarage Road, enjoying loan spells at Crewe Alexandra, Doncaster Rovers, Port Vale and Blackpool.
In 2016 he made the move to League Two side Cambridge United, where he has scored 22 goals to date, 14 of which came last season.
Despite injuries curtailing his debut season at Tynecastle, Uche became a fan favourite immediately and scored 8 goals in his 25 appearances.
