De Kogel, who is available for transfer from Go Ahead Eagles, visited Edinburgh last week and was shown round Tynecastle Park and Hearts’ Riccarton training base.

He held talks and remained in negotiations with Hearts over the weekend. However, no deal could be agreed and it remains to be seen if talks continue.
