More bad news for Hearts fans as club banned from signing Liverpool loanee.
Scottish International defender Danny Wilson’s move to Hearts has been cancelled as the Edinburgh side have moved into administration.
Hearts boss Gary Locke told the Daily Mirror: “Danny Wilson is still a Liverpool player and because we have an embargo we now cannot sign him, which is very unfortunate for me.”
Wilson had spent last season on loan at Hearts, and the club had promised to offer him a deal. The SPL transfer embargo however, forbids clubs in administration to sign new players.
The defender is out of contract with Liverpoool at the end of next month, and Brendan Rodgers is not expected to offer him a new deal. Rodgers is still looking to clear out some unwanted players from his squad, in what will be only his second summer in charge.
After winning the double for Rangers in 2010, Wilson was given the Scottish PFA Young Player of the Year award. This tempted Liverpool into signing him for £2million. His chances at the Merseyside club though were rare, and he only managed two league appearances during his spell, and was sent out on loan three times.
Wilson is now expected to look for a new club.
