Hamill departs Kilmarnock for Hearts

The second of Heart of Midlothian's two signings made today is that of midfielder Jamie Hamill from Kilmarnock.

Hearts boss Jim Jefferies previously worked with the 24-year old at Killie and was desperate to get him to Tynecastle Stadium on a free.

Jefferies confirmed the signing to Hearts News whilst the player himself was excited about a change of environment.

"Jamie is a player I know very well and I'm confident he'll be a good addition to the squad," Jefferies said.

"I am delighted to have brought him here and he will add competition for places which is good for any team."

Hamill added: "There was a lot of interest from other clubs but as soon as I heard of Hearts' interest, I wanted to speak to them as soon as possible.

"It's a massive club and Jim Jefferies gave me my chance at Kilmarnock.

"Billy Brown and Gary Locke are obviously people I know very well, too, so I am delighted to be joining a club of this stature.

"An added factor in my decision was European football and I'm looking forward to it.

"This is going to be the biggest challenge of my career."
