FORMER Hearts owner Vladimir Romanov is due in court today in Russia for an extradition hearing.

The Lithuanians want the 67-year-old returned to face embezzlement allegations running into millions.

His lawyer has admitted the former Tynecastle owner is due in court following his arrest by the Russians earlier this week.

He said that Romanov will oppose the move to have him returned and will oppose any move to have him detained in custody by Russia while the extradition case is being considered.
