Hearts have bolstered their squad ahead of the final third of the season with the signing of Dutch midfielder Kenny Anderson.

Anderson, who has a Scottish father, has played 17 times for the Jupiler League side this season and has joined until the summer of 2016.

Speaking exclusively to Hearts News, Neilson said: "I am delighted to get Kenny on board.

“He’s a quality player, one who I believe will slot right into our side. I’m looking forward to working with him and I feel we will get the best out of him.”
