According to The Glasgow Times, Hearts are interested in taking Glasgow Rangers’ Jake Hastie on loan next season.
Motherwell had been linked with a move for the 22-year-old and were said to be battling at least one English club for his signature, but now it is Hearts who have been mentioned.
Robbie Neilson has recently arrived at Tynecastle to become manager of the Jam Tarts, and it has been reported he wants to take the Gers winger on a temporary basis.
This is far from a stable period for Hearts – they are currently in court with Partick Thistle to take on the SPFL following their premature relegation – but that does not mean they should not prepare for the future at the same time.
Does Jake Hastie have a future at Ibrox?
From a Gers point of view, though, this would not be the best move for the youngster, especially when Motherwell are potentially the other side they could loan him to. At this point in his career, Hastie must be playing at the highest possible level to gain much-valued experience – Hearts are, as it stands, in the second tier, whilst Motherwell qualified for the Europa League by finishing third in the Scottish Premiership last season.
Either way, this is a big campaign for Hastie – at his age, it is time he started making a real impression. It remains to be seen where he eventually ends up.
