The former Burton Albion keeper was a standout at Tynecastle last term, even making his way into the SPFL Team of the Year as the most outstanding goalie in the top flight.

Manager Craig Levein wished to keep the player for another season but conceded that more lucrative offers were on the table.

Qarabag would also represent an opportunity to play in the Champions League. The five-in-a-row title winners made the group stages last season.
