American shot-stopper Kevin penned a two-year deal at Tynecastle this summer, following a successful trial period at the club.
The 20-year-old arrived at Hearts at the start of pre-season and featured in friendly matches against Arbroath, Partick Thistle, Queen of the South and Forfar Athletic.
Silva arrives from the US College system, last playing for Rutgers Scarlet Knights at the University of New Jersey. Before that, he had spells on loan on the US East Coast with the UCLA Bruins and FC Golden State Force.
He also had a loan spell at the wonderfully named New England Tea Men. In his fledgling career, he's already represented the USMNT - US Men's National Team - at under-15, under-17, and under-19 levels.
