Jordan Roberts speaks on Hearts future after impressing at Motherwell
Jordan Roberts has admitted that he is trying not to get distracted by transfer talk following his loan switch from Hearts to Motherwell.
The 27-year-old struggled to hold down a first-team spot at Tynecastle Park, starting just four times in the Championship.
A loan move to the Premiership presented itself at the end of the January transfer window and it is a move which has worked out well for Roberts.
He scored and assisted in a 2-0 win over Hibs, while adding quality in the air and on the ground to the Steelmen’s attack.
His form has naturally led to questions about his future with a year remaining on his deal at Tynecastle.
“I take each day and each game as it comes,” Roberts told the Evening News' sister title the Motherwell Times.
“I want to try and help out as much here as possible.
"I’ve got another year at Hearts and if I end up there, I end up there. But my main objective is to contribute here and not get distracted and sidetracked by transfer talk whether I’m going to be at Hearts or Motherwell.”
Roberts is enjoying his role alongside Devante Cole and former Hearts forward Tony Watt.
"The manager has kind of given me a freedom almost to play and express myself and as a player that’s what you want,” he said.
"The shackles are off now and when I cross that white line it’s down to me to go out there, repay the faith that the manager’s put in me, help the lads and contribute as much as I can.”
