ROBBIE MUIRHEAD has left Hearts to join up with his former Tynecastle gaffer at MK Dons.
The deal involves the English side paying an undisclosed fee for the forward to cover the remaining few months of his one year contract at Hearts.
The striker, who scored his only two goals for the club in the victory over Rangers in December, has signed a 2-and-a-half year deal at the League One side.
Muirhead played for Hearts on 19 occasions but like summer signing Tony Watt, he failed to hold down an starting place in the team and is now looking to build his career south of the order at the Stadium mk under the guidance of Robbie Neilson.
Meanwhile Hearts are reported to be interested in Celtic’s Nadir Ciftci, who is desperate to get away from Parkhead to get some first team action.
Ciftci has been told by Brendan Rodgers that he will not figure in his plans so a loan move to Tynecastle would be a decent shop window for the former Dundee United man.
Hearts have also enquired about Rangers winger Michael O’Halloran but the Tynecastle club face stiff competition from his former club St Johnstone. Mark McGhee’s Motherwell, who face Rangers in the Scottish Cup tomorrow at Ibrox, have also placed a bid on the table for the player.
