Portuguese trialists Joao Moreira and Zezinando have signed three-year contracts to join Hearts, according to their agent, Paulo Barbosa, reports The Scotsman. However, Hearts officials were adamant that both players remain on trial after arriving at the team hotel in Southampton over the weekend.

The club said boss Csaba Laszlo will assess them in training and they are expected to feature in Wednesday night's friendly against Plymouth Argyle at Home Park.
