Andy Driver has heaped praise on Hearts' academy system.
Driver has been named the SPL young player of the month and told the Hearts website: "Hearts have brought through a lot of players recently.
"There's Calum Elliot and Lee Wallace and then there's Craig Gordon, who moved away for £9m and probably paid for the building of the academy itself.
"They're also widening things by bringing young players in from abroad.
"You see that with teams like Arsenal and it's paid dividends with them."
