The move to Hearts brings him back to Britain after a previous spell at Reading. Bozanic has also played for Australian clubs Melbourne Victory and Central Coast Mariners, as well as Luzern in Switzerland and Ventforen Cofu in Japan.

He is an energetic midfielder who normally plays in the holding role. His arrival takes Hearts' number of signings to nine, with the Austrian defender Peter Haring to follow and take the total into double figures.
