Hearts goalkeeper Jamie MacDonald will remain at Hearts after a brief discussion with boss Csaba Laszlo.

The stopper had indicated publicly about wanting a loan move but the Tynecastle boss claims Macdonald has not discussed this with him, reports The Scotsman.

"Jamie has been training all week and has not told me nothing," said Laszlo. "I asked yesterday: 'Jamie, is everything okay? Would you like to tell me something?' He said: 'No, no, it's okay, coach.'

"Jamie is definitely part of the squad here. He will be on the bench on Saturday and will remain involved in the next games. He will stay with Hearts, he is a young player who would like to play but we can only use one goalkeeper. Jamie has a future here, definitely."
