Fraser has told United he will not sign a pre-contract agreement with another club at the moment because he is focused only on overcoming the injury. Hearts have watched him for some time and could make their move later this year.

The player is available for free this summer as he turns 23 in March. FIFA rules state that compensation is not due if a player leaves a club after the end of the season in which he turns 23.
