Hearts captain Danny Wilson is attracting interest from Greek Super League outfit Panathinaikos.

Wilson, who invoked a clause in his contract allowing him to leave Tynecastle for free at the end of the season, has been monitored by several clubs in Scotland – including Celtic – and in England, but the Athens-based side have watched him several times this season and are weighing up whether to offer the 23-year-old a deal.

Takis Fyssas, the former Hearts left-back who won the Scottish Cup with the Jambos in 2006, is also the technical director at Panathinaikos. They are currently second in the top league in Greece and have a chance of qualifying for the Champions League next season.

Wilson has been at Hearts since 2013 and is understood to want a fresh challenge after helping the Gorgie outfit cruise to the Scottish Championship title.
