Teenage striker Alistair Roy has signed a new two-year contract at Hearts.

However, fellow youngsters Robbie Buchanan and Dale Baxter are being released from Tynecastle. Roy has extended his deal until 2019 after an impressive season both at under-20 level and on loan at Stenhousemuir.

He has already made two senior appearances for Hearts but was sent on loan to East Stirlingshire and Stenhousemuir in the last two seasons to gain experience.

He is now expected to push for more first-team opportunities at the start of the new campaign.

Midfielders Buchanan and Baxter have been told they are free to leave the Edinburgh club when their contracts expire this summer.
