DONE DEAL: Hearts sign Everton striker Simms

New loan recruit Ellis Simms brings "great pedigree" to Hearts, says manager Robbie Neilson after securing the long-term target from Everton.

The 21-year-old striker has moved to Tynecastle for the rest of the season and made his debut in the league defeat to Celtic on Wednesday.

Simms scored 10 times in a six-month loan at Blackpool last season, helping them win promotion to the Championship.

"I'm really happy to get a player of Ellis' quality on board," said Neilson.

"He's got a great pedigree and all the attributes to be a success up here."
