Financially struggling Hearts have been placed under a Scottish Premier League transfer embargo after failing to pay "a number of players" on time.

And a statement from the SPL confirmed Hearts will be banned from making new signings until players have been paid.

The statement read: "This is a Remuneration Default in terms of the SPL Rules and the Club is therefore subject to an automatic transfer embargo while that Remuneration Default continues.

"The actions also indicate a potential breach of SPL rule A6.21 and a disciplinary hearing will be convened in due course."
