He joins Stuart McCall, Steve Cotterill and Jack Ross to have held talks with the Hearts hierarchy.

McCann has been out of management since leaving Dundee last October when the team were bottom of the Scottish Premiership.

The club are planning more interviews with possible successors to Levein, one of which is Stephen Robinson.

It is reported that Hearts will approach Motherwell in the coming days to speak to the Northern Irishman, who had been installed as the early favourite for the position.

With Michael O'Neill to depart his role as Northern Ireland boss in the coming months, Robinson may wait for the opportunity to manage his country.

Meanwhile, John Terry has entered the betting to become the new Hearts boss. The Chelsea legend is currently Aston Villa No.2.
