Hearts striker Juho Makela has hinted of a move away from Tynecastle if he cannot secure a regular first team slot.

The 25-year-old Finnish international moved to Hearts in 2006 but has already spent time on-loan at FC Thun and former club HJK.

"I know I can play, I know I can score," he said. "The manager has chosen other strikers so far. I've been on the bench and I'm happy that I'm involved in everything with the first team now. But I'm not happy because I'm not on the pitch.

"If it continues like this, of course we need to have more serious conversations. I will speak to the manager."
