The 27-year-old arrived at Tynecastle Park in March after horrendous injury problems left him without a competitive appearance since January 2017 at Barnsley.

But he has been gradually working towards a return and Hearts are encouraged by the former Leeds left-back’s condition.

“He is coming on. He is now running without any pain,” said Levein.

“We might see him before the end of the season but I just want to make sure he is right before we put him on the field in a competitive match.

It’s quite a while since he has played competitive football. We certainly won’t see the best of him until next season but he is making progress and has a smile on his face.”
