Hearts striker Mauricio Pinilla says he has sealed his switch to Universidad de Chile on loan.
The Chile international has announced that an agreement, which will allow him to return to his homeland until June, has been accepted.
The agreement was reached on the day that Pinilla had put as the deadline for deciding where he was going to play.
"An agreement has been arranged and everything is ready," the 23-year-old said in the South American media.
"I am going to sign the contracts as soon as possible so the transfer is sent to Chile.
"Hearts have bought the part of the transfer that was still owned by Sporting Lisbon so there was then an agreement with Hearts.
"I have cancelled my contract with Sporting Lisbon and I will continue to be tied to Hearts.
"I must thank Hearts that they accepted to let me play on loan in Chile until June."
