Transfer update as key target moves closer...

Hearts manager Craig Levein has once again elected to leave Kyle Lafferty on the bench for this afternoon’s BetFred cup clash with Dunfermline following similar against SPL opponents Hamilton. Indeed, following Rangers’ increased interest, the only match of the past three Lafferty has started in was against Celtic, and he scored the winner.

Levein has been increasingly testy over the interest in his star man from Rangers, and for Lafferty’s own part the front man has left the door entirely open for Rangers to secure him.

But for Steven Gerrard to do that, the board will have to sanction paying the lion’s share of Hearts’ asking price which is reported to be around £750,000, more and more fans are a little confused as to why there’s any hold up given the fairly healthy spending of around £8M so far otherwise in the window.

Lafferty is undeniably unsettled, and we really don’t want a repeat of the last saga involving Jamie Walker, where an unhappy player ended up switching south for a fraction of Hearts’ asking price.

This one may rumble on yet, folks.
