Hearts coach Stephen Frail is delighted to be staying on this season.
"It's a move up, because this time last year it was the under-19s," he said. "It was a trial period, and I've now been given an extension. There will be a year's contract - the terms were discussed when I took the job on at the beginning.
"Anatoly is the sporting director - he oversees other things as well. It was a good relationship last year. His English is improving now, so hopefully we can hear his voice more."
