It is reported in the media this week that Hearts are hoping to lure Burnley FC striker Steven Thompson back to the Scottish Premier League.
The 31 year old played for both Dundee United and Rangers before signing for Cardiff City in January 2006 for £250,000.
At Dundee United, Thompson used to clean Owen Coyle's boots!
It was Owen Coyle who brought Thompson to Turf Moor on the 1st September 2008 in a two-year deal so his contract will be up in the summer.
Both the News of the World and the Daily Mirror claim Hearts boss Jim Jefferies is keen on the Scotland international and wants to bring him to Tynecastle..
Thompson has struggled to get into the side this season for the Clarets making just three starting eleven appearances. Two of those were in cup games against Hartlepool in the Carling Cup and Reading in the FA Cup.
His only start in the Premier League was in the recent home game against Stoke City last month. He has though been a regular on the bench and made a number of appearances coming on as a substitute.
Although Thompson arguably might not be Premier League quality should we get relegated,he could certainly do well for us in the Championship and Brian Laws might be tempted to offer him a new contract.
On the other hand, Thompson might now be tempted to move on and leave on a Bosman.
The Mirror article writen by some blighter called Alan Nixon (We know a song about him!)suggests though that Thompson might prefer to stay South of the Border and will be open to offers in the Summer.
This is in complete contrast to the News of the World who state that Thommo is understood to be keen on a return to the SPL!! Busted or not?
