The Cameroon midfielder, who signed for the Capital outfit in September 2015 following a spell at Lech Poznan in Poland, is out of contract at the end of this season.

The 29-year-old returned to the first team in September after battling back from a ruptured Achilles suffered last February and has started Hearts’ last nine matches.

Despite previously appearing keen on a move to the French football, Djoum – an Africa Cup of Nations winner with Cameroon in 2017 – has revealed his desire to sign a new deal at Tynecastle.
