Last Updated: 14/08/19 4:21pm
Republic of Ireland international Glenn Whelan has joined Hearts after signing a one-year deal.
The 35-year-old midfielder was a free agent after his contract expired at Aston Villa in the summer.
Whelan spent two seasons at Villa Park, playing 35 league games in the 2018-19 campaign as the club returned to the Premier League via the play-offs.
He has 86 caps for Ireland, most recently featuring in a 1-1 draw at Denmark in their Euro 2020 qualifier back in June.
Whelan started his career at Manchester City, and went on to play for Bury and Sheffield Wednesday before making almost 300 appearances for Stoke City during a 10-year spell.
Thought the transfer window was closed? Wrong. Across Europe, plenty of deals are still being done, with Premier League players still able to move to the continent.
The transfer window for Spain's La Liga, Italy's Serie A, Germany's Bundesliga and France's Ligue 1 closes at varying times on Monday September 2. Meanwhile, League One, League Two and Scottish clubs can also do deals until September 2.
