Hearts have confirmed that new signing Christophe Berra has taken over the mantle of club captain.

Berra, 32, returned to Tynecastle yesterday following his release from Ipswich Town and signed a three-year deal. He also skippered the club during his first spell at Hearts.

The Scotland international defender takes over from American midfielder Perry Kitchen, who was club captain last season.
