Son of ex-Liverpool owner Gillett makes Hearts attempt

The son of former Liverpool co-owner George Gillett has failed with an initial approach about buying into Hearts.

US businessman Foster Gillett wants to buy a controlling stake in the Tynecastle club.

He is believed to have made contact with the Edinburgh side last week through a third party.

A Hearts spokesperson told The Sun: "An approach had been made, as have others in the past.

"We have a commitment to pass club ownership to the fans, and that commitment has not changed."

Gillett junior was linked with English Championship side Derby County late last year.
