Hearts midfielder Arnaud Djoum has been named in Cameroon's squad for the Confederations Cup in Russia.

The tournament is a precursor to next summer's World Cup and involves eight countries - Russia, New Zealand, Portugal and Mexico in Group A, plus Cameroon, Australia, Chile and Germany in Group B.

Djoum will spend a month with his international colleagues as they face Morocco in an African Cup of Nations qualifier on June 10, then a friendly against Columbia on June 13.

The Confederations Cup starts on June 17 and runs until July 2. It will take place across four Russian cities - Moscow, St Petersburg, Kazan and Sochi.

Djoum played a key role in Cameroon's African Cup of Nations triumph in Gabon in February this year.
