Hearts set to "free up funds" with sales

Hearts coach Stephen Frail admits they'll be looking to send some of their squad away in January to "free up funds" for new arrivals.

He said: "It would be remiss if we didn't do that [look at new players]. It all depends on what money is available and if teams are keen to sell their players. It's all conjecture just now. I hope we would be looking at some players maybe going out. We look at the squad we have and there are guys who have not featured a lot and it would be good for us and them if we could move them on and get their careers going again.

"That would also free up funds for us so we can freshen things up. I'm sure we'll sit down and look at who we would like to bring in."
