Speaking to Hearts website, he said: "It’s such a big club, the coaches are good and so are the facilities.

"I went on trial once, and after that they asked if I wanted to sign. I went on trial a second time and then they put an offer in to my club.

"I’m a striker, I play up front so obviously I like to score goals. My ambitions are to break into the first team and score as many goals as I can."

He added: "I’ll be studying English and Physical Education. I’m in four days a week. On Monday and Tuesday I’ll train with the under-18s.

"But mostly, I’m looking forward to getting on the pitch and scoring goals."
