Hearts boss Jim Jefferies has offered a return to Adrian Mrowiec as one of two trialists who will join the club on their first day of pre-season on Wednesday.
Polish midfielder Mrowiec played in his homeland with top-flight club Arka Gdynia last season after spending the previous campaign at Tynecastle.
Mrowiec, who was on loan at both clubs from Kaunas, made 10 appearances for Hearts.
He will be joined by 23-year-old Lithuanian striker Rytis Leliuga, who played for Danish super league club HB Kobe last term.
Jefferies, who also hopes to retain goalkeeper Marian Kello on an extended contract, told his club's official website: "Adrian is well known to the club having been here before.
"He had some injury problems but has gone away and played regularly in Poland so I'll have a look at him.
"The other lad has been recommended to us so we'll see about him.
"He's joining a team going to the tournament in Oban this weekend which will be a mixture of young players and reserve lads.
"If the reports are good we might have a look at him in Italy for a couple of days."
Meanwhile, winger Andrew Driver, who had been a target of Burnley, is confident he will be fit for the start of the season following minor knee surgery in Stockholm.
"The surgeon in Sweden was brilliant. He said the problem is actually really small, and getting it fixed should help me get back up and running pretty quickly," said Driver.
"I am hoping that in four to six weeks I will be back in training, starting with the bike this week."
