Skacel wants new Hearts contract

Rudi Skacel is hoping he can come to an agreement so he can remain at Heart of Midlothian.

The 31-year old Czech midfielder comes out of contract in July but is keen to sign a new contract with Hearts and hopes to conclude negotiations with club owner Vladimir Romanov when he returns from holidays.

"I'm under contract with Hearts and I last talked with Mr Romanov two months ago," he said.

"I'm on holiday now but both sides will discuss the future as soon as possible. We report back in 10 days and I hope Mr Romanov calls me before then. If nothing happens, I can also call him.

"My agent was speaking in the media recently but I don't know why because he doesn't know what's going on with this deal.

"It's between Mr Romanov and me and we can negotiate a deal. He is my boss.

"I believe he trusts me and that's the most important thing and why we can discuss this contract. I'd like to stay at Hearts because we didn't have a bad season last time, although we encountered some difficulties in the end.

"Overall I was satisfied and if everything goes well I'd like to stay at Hearts for at least the next two seasons."
