Prospering Hearts forward Euan Henderson has signed a new two-year contract to stay with the Edinburgh club.

The reward for his rise to prominence under manager Daniel Stendel has come in the shape of a new deal until summer 2022.

Henderson was out of contract at the end of May but has now joined fellow Riccarton academy graduate Lewis Moore in extending his time with the club.

Talks are ongoing with defender Jamie Brandon, who has also been offered a contract for the next two years.

Henderson, 19, was out of the first-team picture earlier in the season but made a significant impression once Stendel arrived as manager in December.

He made 11 appearances under the German until Scottish football was forced into shutdown by coronavirus on March 13.

Henderson also claimed his first senior Hearts goal in January’s 5-0 Scottish Cup win against Airdrie.

He spent time on loan at Montrose during season 2018/19 to get more first-team experience and returned to his parent club last summer.

He only featured twice under Craig Levein during the first half of the campaign. However, he flourished predominantly in a wide role after Stendel took charge.

He will now aim to develop his career further at Tynecastle Park over the next two years, even if his club end up playing in Scotland’s second tier next season.
