Steven Thompson has been offered a new contract with Burnley FC but has yet to make a decision.
One club in particular, Hearts was thought to be interested in signing the 31 year old Scotland international based on speculation in the media last month.
It can be confimed today that Steven Thompson's agent has indeed been in contact with the Tynecastle club about a possible move.
Hearts gaffer Jim Jefferies is quoted as saying:
'We are aware Steven Thompson is out of contract and could be available.His agent spoke to us about his availability and that is as far as it has gone.
'We thanked him for letting us know and then told him we would get back in touch if we have an interest.We are still finalising our targets just now and until we do that then we won't be making any moves.'
There is of course nothing sinister about this, the agent is only doing his job and looking at alternatives should Thompson decide that a new contract at Burnley would not be in his own interests.
It is also possible the agent put out the feelers before Thompson was offered a new deal at Burnley FC.
Jefferies has already declared that a big target man is a priority and an article in the Daily Express today suggests Thompson and out-of-contract Kilmarnock star Kevin Kyle are very much in Jim Jeffries thinking.
Thompson will need to decide whether he feels he will get enough games next season and help our chances of gaining promotion back to the top flight at our first attempt or whether a career move to play in the SPL might be more attractive.
