The 24-year-old has agreed a pre-contract to join up with Eva Olid’s squad as soon as her current deal with English side Lewes expires this summer.

The striker joined Lewes after a successful spell with Oxford United in the third-tier of English football, when she struck 16 goals in the truncated 2019/20 campaign which was ultimately halted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

She’s made over 50 appearances for Lewes, who compete in the FA Women’s Championship, including netting in a famous 2-1 victory over Liverpool on the final day of last season.

The attacker becomes Hearts’ third signing of the summer as they look to add experience to their team ahead of the expanded 12-team SWPL 1, which will come into effect next season.

Emma Brownlie and Ciara Grant both arrived from Rangers earlier in the summer.
