Heart of Midlothian have been able to secure star midfielder Rudi Skacel to a new contract.

The 32-year old was set to come out of contract at the end of January but has now signed an extension until the end of the season.

Hearts are experiencing huge financial difficulties at present but Skacel said he was delighted to have committed himself to the Edinburgh club at least until the summer.

"I am happy to say we came to an agreement with Hearts and I am staying till the end of season! Let's go Jambos!" he posted on Twitter.
