The 33-year-old has only featured three times as a substitute for the Dons since the turn of the year and has signed up at Tynecastle until the end of the campaign – but admitted his season had been a difficult one.

“I just want to get back playing again. It’s been a frustrating year and I’m really looking forward to it,” he told the club website.

“I want to help the club get the league wrapped up and show people what I can do. When I play for a football team, be it Aberdeen Manchester City, Brentford or Hearts, fans will know that I always give 110 percent.

“It was something that was brought to me quite quickly and I was more than happy to come. I can get game time and give Hearts a solid right back.”

Logan’s loan departure is another high-profile move for new Aberdeen boss Stephen Glass, but the defender could be pitched in to Robbie Neilson’s side for the weekend trip to Dunfermline which could also clinch the Championship title if results fall in the Jam Tarts’ favour.

The former Brentford defender confirmed: “I’m fit and raring to go. It’s been a frustrating season so this is a great opportunity for myself and I’m raring to go.”

Trained as a youth at Manchester City, Logan has experience on his side having made 276 appearances in Scotland, with 14 goals since moving north from the Bees in 2014.
