HEARTS striker Bjorn Johnsen believes the Edinburgh outfit are the perfect launch pad for the big-time after welcoming the attention of visiting scouts.

The American-born frontman was named as one of four Tynecastle stars who caught the attention of Derby County boss Steve McClaren during the recent 2-0 win over Rangers.
Johnsen, 25, under contract until the summer of 2019, he has made no secret of his aspiration to move on to a bigger club.
His performances in November – including two goals against Motherwell and superb showing against the Ibrox outfit – landed him Premiership Player of the Month – and he hopes the talent-spotters are impressed.

He said: “Honestly, that’s what I want. You always want recognition and want big clubs to come and pick you up.

“Right now, I am focused on Hearts and I can’t tell you what will happen in the future. But I am really pleased that clubs down south are looking at me.

“As a player, that is what my aspiration is, to play in England or in another big league.

“The Scottish league right now is on a high and people are watching us, so that is a good thing for everyone. Not just for me, but all the other players.

“John Souttar is being watched, as well, and Calum Paterson is always being scouted, so when Calum is being watched, we are all being watched – that is good for us.”
