Hearts seeking big money for Driver

15 June 2010 02:52
Hearts have warned they will not sell star playmaker Andrew Driver unless the price is right.

The Edinburgh club say they are willing to listen to offers for the winger, who has been linked with both Burnley and FC Twente.

But Jambos bosses want a "sizeable" transfer fee to be agreed before they will sanction any move for the 22-year-old, who is under contract until 2013.

Hearts director Sergejus Fedotovas told Hearts.TV: "We absolutely know what we want to achieve.

"We have had a number of discussions with a few clubs and I'm glad we have been getting very healthy interest in the player.

"If we get a proposal which falls within our expectations then we will consider it very seriously.

"If not, then we will keep the player for the benefit of the team."

Fedotovas added: "Obviously, we will make a decision on what is in the best interests of the club.

"To a larger extent, the interests of the player and the club coincide - for us to achieve a sizeable transfer fee and the player to get to a higher level to continue his development would be quite important."

Meanwhile, Craig Bryson has revealed his desire to join forces with former boss Jim Jefferies at Hearts.

The 23-year-old midfielder is ready to sign for the Tynecastle side as soon as they agree a fee with Kilmarnock, who he is contracted to until 2012.

Bryson told the Edinburgh Evening News: "I enjoyed working under Jim Jefferies at Kilmarnock. He gave me my chance in the SPL and I would like to work under him again.

"I just got back from Australia the other day and I haven't heard anything more about the situation.

"Kilmarnock still don't know who their manager is going to be so I just don't know what is happening.

"I just need to wait and see if anything comes of Hearts' interest."
