Heart of Midlothian are interested in signing Tom Heardman from Newcastle United in the summer transfer window, according to The Chronicle.

According to the report, Heardman could join Scottish Premiership side Hearts from Premier League outfit Newcastle on a season-long loan deal.

League One clubs are also claimed to be interested in securing the services of the talented and promising 21-year-old forward.

Good move?

Heardman is unlikely to play regularly for Newcastle in the Premier League next season, and it would make sense for him to switch to Hearts in the summer transfer window.

The youngster is very talented and has a lot of potential, and for him to progress and develop as a footballer, he needs to play regularly.

The Scottish Premiership is not as good as the Championship or the Premier League, but it is a competitive domestic league, and Heardman would learn a lot from playing for Hearts against the likes of Celtic and Rangers.
