Kevin Kyle says Kilmarnock midfielder Craig Bryson would be a great asset for Hearts. Kyle knows all about Bryson's qualities having played alongside him at Kilmarnock and is only too well aware of speculation that Jim Jefferies could be set to make a move for the midfield star.

Although Killie would be loathe to let their prize asset go on the cheap, Kyle has no doubts Bryson could do a job at Hearts if a move for the midfielder could be made.

Speaking in The Sun 29 year old hitman Kyle said: " I would love Craig Bryson to come here. He has been talked about in Scottish football for the last season or two and rightly so because he is a fantastic midfielder.

"He has great energy and is a box-to-box player, more of an attacker but he can certainly defend as well.

"He has got class and skill and ability and a great range of passing. He would bring a lot to any team."
