Heart of Midlothian are targeting Liverpool young gun Jordon Ibe as a possible replacement for Adam King.

The Scotsman suggests that Jambos boss Gary Locke is intent on bringing in an attacking midfielder after seeing teenager King join Swansea City on a three-and-a-half-year deal.

Hearts' transfer situation currently has them on a 'one in, one out' basis and it is believed that the Edinburgh outfit want 18-year old winger Ibe on loan for the rest of the season.

Locke is eager to get a deal done before Hearts meet Inverness in the League Cup semi-final at Easter Road on Sunday.
