Heart of Midlothian FC has agreed terms with our striker Jon Daly, for him to become their new U20s coach upon expiration of his Stark’s Park playing contract  in January.

This is obviously very disappointing news for the Stark’s Park faithful, but the club was not in a position to compete with the terms offered by the Premiership outfit and in any event we would not wish to stand in the way of a great chance for Jon to move into coaching with a club of Hearts’ structure.

Jon will leave in January with our best wishes for the future.

Hearts’ Director of Football Craig Levein said: “I’m delighted that Jon has agreed to join the club in January and take up the post of U20s coach. Jon is somebody that both myself and Robbie know from our respective times at Dundee United and it’s an exciting appointment. We believe he has all the attributes to develop into a great coach and we look forward to welcoming him in January.”
