Olly Lee: Fresh interest from England in unsettled Hearts midfielder
English League One side Gillingham are keen to sign the Hearts midfielder Olly Lee on loan.
Managed by Glasgow-born Steve Evans, the Kent club want to strengthen their midfield and see Lee as an ideal candidate.
Hearts have agreed to let the 28-year-old leave a year after he arrived at Tynecastle Park on a three-year contract from Luton Town.
He made 41 appearances last season, scoring six goals, but became frustrated after dropping out of the starting line-up in the second half of the campaign.
He wants to return to England, although a proposed move to Southend United fell through earlier this month.
Gillingham could now move quickly to help the player restart his career again. He spent a brief there on loan from West Ham United in 2012.
Evans has admired Lee since his Luton days and will attempt to agree a loan deal with Hearts before the transfer deadline next Monday, September 2.
