Hearts manager Craig Levein has declared his excitement at the prospect of signing Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Sean Clare.
The 21-year-old was at Fir Park today to see the Tynecastle side defeat Motherwell 1-0 and is set to become the club’s 18th signing of the summer.
Levein said: “He’s nearly signed. It’s been quite complicated. He’s a Sheffield Wednesday player essentially because he’s subject to training compensation. We’re just trying to get that whole thing sorted out. I believe the paperwork’s nearly done and he should be signed with us by Monday and I can’t tell you how excited I am about that.”
Clare, who has previously spent time on loan with Bury, Accrington Stanley and Gillingham, turned down the chance to sign a new contract with Wednesday and was linked with Aston Villa and Rangers earlier this summer.
