Hearts fullback Aaron Hickey excited to be joining Bologna

Hearts fullback Aaron Hickey is excited to be joining Bologna.

Hickey is now in Italy to complete his transfer.

"He could even make his debut next weekend against Zlatan Ibrahimovic's Milan at San Siro.

“Ibrahimovic has been playing since I was a wee guy so it's massive for me," Hickey told BBC Sport.

“Going from my primary school playground to San Siro would just be amazing. I'll go over and train my hardest, and do whatever I can to break through to the first team.

“It's one of the top leagues in the world. Playing against [Cristiano] Ronaldo, [Paulo] Dybala, it's going to be crazy for me - if I get the chance."
