Hearts favourites to sign striker Liam Boyce after Burton accept bid

Burton Albion have accepted a bid from Heart of Midlothian for striker Liam Boyce.

Boyce is in the process of discussing personal terms with the Edinburgh side, and they are hoping that a deal can be struck to convince the striker to return to Scotland before Rangers’ visit to Tynecastle on Sunday afternoon.

He has netted 14 times in 33 outings for Burton since joining from Ross County and is in the final six months of his contract with the club.

Hearts are the favourites to sign him as it stands, with a fee of around £250,000 being rumoured.

However, the striker may have further ambitions to carry on his successful spell down south rather than enter a relegation battle in the Scottish Premiership, where Hearts are bottom of the table.
