Hearts set to sell key players in January
Heart of Midlothian have confirmed they will sell up in January in a bid to ease some of their financial worries.
The Edinburgh club are around £35million in debt and with owner Vladimir Romanov looking to sell, the Jambos will offload some of their senior players in the winter and at the end of the season says director Sergejus Fedotovas.
"Mr Romanov has made his position clear and I can reinforce that, while he is justifiably disillusioned by many aspects of the sport - as are so many of the supporters and owners of teams across Europe - he has not lost his feeling for Hearts," he told the Morning Star.
"We have several players that have reached the peak of their career at Hearts and are ready for a move.
"Whether this will be January or the summer - we will need to see what options will be available to us.
"Our strategy involves bringing through the best young players while selling or releasing some of the senior and fringe players."
