Australian midfielder Oliver Bozanic, who has signed a two year contract with Hearts, believes the club can challenge at the top of the league.
The former Melbourne City player joined the Jambos on a free transfer having left the Australian A-League side.
Capped seven times for Australia, he was part of the Socceroos' 2014 World Cup squad in Brazil and made two appearances in the group stage.
The central midfielder has experience across world football having spent time in the UK with Reading, before stints in Switzerland and Japan as well as back home in Australia. It was here Bozanic tasted silverware, winning the 2012/13 A-League Championship and it is something he would love to repeat at Hearts.
"The club is so ambitious and that's part of the reason I wanted to be here. There's a strong desire to be up there and hopefully this season we can challenge for some top places.
"It's a strong league and I'm very excited to get going."
Bozanic is one of ten new signings made by Hearts manager Craig Levein already this summer and Levein looks set to continue his summer spree as former Hamilton midfielder Ali Crawford is currently training with the club in the hope of earning himself a contract.
