HEARTS today signed Dutch striker Genero Zeefuik on loan from FC Groningen until the end of the season.

The 24-year-old former PSV Eindhoven player arrives in Edinburgh to reinforce the club’s forward line, with Osman Sow, Dale Carrick and Soufian El Hassnaoui currently recovering from injury.

Zeefuik is a former Holland Under-21 internationalist, who can play as a centre forward or in behind a main striker. He carries a physical presence but also has a reputation in Holland as a skilful forward who can link play.

Hearts head coach Robbie Neilson will include Zeefuik in his squad for Saturday’s league trip to Dumbarton pending international clearance.
