Hearts will head to Chester later this week for a four-day training camp that will entail two friendlies against Eastern European opposition.
Robbie Neilson’s squad travel south on Thursday and will face Bulgarian champions Ludogorets Razgrad at Leigh Sports Village, Lancashire, at 7.30pm that evening.
On Sunday, they will conclude their mini pre-season tour with a friendly at the same venue against Romanian side Dinamo Bucharest, to whom they lost 5-1 in Leigh last summer. The kick-off time is to be confirmed.
The addition of the two matches to their schedule means they now have seven friendlies arranged, with games against East Fife, Hamilton Accies, Manchester City, Dundee and St Johnsone to come when they return to Scotland.
