Oyegoke seals three-year Hearts move


Scottish club, Hearts, has confirmed the signing of Daniel Oyegoke on a three-year contract.

Oyegoke joined Hearts from Brentford for an undisclosed fee.

The 21-year-old is the fourth summer arrival at Tynecastle.

Hearts previously acquired James Penrice, Ryan Fulton and James Penrice this summer.

Oyegoke spent last season on loan at Bradford where he featured 28 times across all competitions.

Manager Steve Naismith is expecting big things from the versatile defender.

It’s another really positive bit of news to get Daniel in as a Hearts player,” Naismith told the club’s website.

“He’s versatile, has physicality and also a calmness in possession. He’s willing to take the ball under pressure and that’s a big part of the way we want our defenders to play.

“What’s really impressed me is his desire to progress his career. He’s not comfortable just standing still in a safe environment, he wants to forge a career and advance to a higher level, and I expect him to do that with Hearts.”
