Reports are suggesting that Harry Kewell could soon sign for Melbourne Heart.

The 34-year old former Leeds United, Liverpool and Galatasaray winger is being heavily linked with a move to the Heart after his short-term loan with Qatari club Al-Gharafa finished recently.

It was believed that Kewell, who previously played with crosstown rivals Melbourne Victory, was set to sign tomorrow but a press conference was called off, however, that has not dampened the spirits of Heart chief Scott Munn.

"We are keen to sign him, but no deal has been done," Munn said.

"I'd be lying if I said (coach) John Aloisi hadn't spoken to him, but he spoke to several players while in Europe.

"We believe he'd be a fantastic addition and we need players with a winner's mentality."

Kewell was recently left out of Holger Osieck's Australian squad as they prepare for vital World Cup qualifiers in June.
