The Swede would add to the options in attack with Kyle Lafferty having recently left for Rangers and David Vanecek, signed on a pre-contract, not yet due to arrive until January.
Here’s how the fans reacted to the news...
@Reeceturner00: “Sow, Sow. Osman Osman Sow. He gets the ball, he scores a goal. Osman Osman Sow.”
@ffppaul: “Osman Sow. A cynical and blatant attempt to win back the favour of the Hearts fans after the disappointment of losing Lafferty. It’s working on me!”
@NJJarvie: “Winning the treble is going to be Sow f*****g easy. Absolute banter of a re-signing.”
@jambogally: “Just when you think you are over someone they walk back into your life. #sow”
@rosspilcher: “Osman Sow (assuming he remains free of injury) is a good fit for Hearts just now. Real turn of pace and proven record of scoring in this league. Would compliment Ikpeazu’s power and MacLean’s intelligence/link-up play well.”
@GeorgeYoung1394: “Ikpeazu, Sow, Naismith, Maclean and then Vanecek no later than Jan... that’s frightening #goals”
@jemedgeworth: “Osman Sow to soften the blow.”
@Jamie_Jambo: “Hearts have literally just sent a post-breakup “hey stranger” text to Osman Sow and Osman Sow clearly hasn’t had his h*** for a while.”
@tynecastleroar1: “Cashing in on Laff, bringing home Sow on loan whose contract ends at the end of the season? Craig Levein masterclass.”
@aliboag: “IF Osman Sow comes back and IF he’s as good as last time then we’ve actually upgraded on Lafferty.”
@GaryMilligen: “Here if big Ozzy Sow comes back I’ll forget about Lafferty in a heartbeat! Loved that guy!”
@Rhysco12: “Surely there’s gotta be a reason Sow has hardly played at MK Dons....hope I’m wrong.”
