Kingston determined to stick with Hearts

The midfielder is on £15,000 a week and had been expected to follow top scorer Andrius Velicka out the exit door.

But the 27-year-old is focusing solely on the job in hand at Tynecastle.

"At the moment I have a contract at Hearts for another two years after this season.

"So I am concentrating 100% to do my best and win something for the club. I am happy to be here and my family is happy, so I am happy to stay with Hearts.

"I don't know the plans of the management, but I hope they'll bring in a couple of players.

"We've lost our top scorer and need to replace him as soon as possible."
