Scandinavian group looking to buy out Hearts owner Romanov

A group of six Scandinavian men have emerged as potential buyers for Heart of Midlothian FC.

The consortium of businessmen, who all studied in Edinburgh, are very interested in taking control from current owner Vladimir Romanov according to SunSport.

With backgrounds in banking, oil engineering, shipping and venture capitalism, the group want to split the club into a separate sporting body and limited company with Hearts Foundation fans' group to control the sporting side and them to oversee the business aspects.

"It's still early days but the consortium have looked into this and haven't run away," said a source close to the consortium.

"This model would be built on a realistic assessment of a club the size of Hearts.

"There's no reason why the club shouldn't be the third biggest in the country and challenging."
