Hearts are in talks with Celtic about Scotland goalkeeper Craig Gordon rejoining the Tynecastle club.
Gordon is understudy to Fraser Forster at Celtic Park and has started just one match – the 2-0 Europa League dead-rubber defeat to Cluj – in four months.
The 37-year-old, out of contract this summer, is understood to be keen on a return to Tynecastle.
Talks between the clubs have been ongoing for weeks, with Celtic initially reluctant to lose Gordon.

Hearts currently have three keepers – Zdenek Zlamal, on-loan Manchester United goalie Joel Pereira and Colin Doyle – but manager Daniel Stendel is keen to add the experience of Gordon as the club attempt to climb off the bottom of the Scottish Premiership.
Gordon began his career at Tynecastle, making 176 appearances and helping the team to 2006 Scottish Cup success before joining Sunderland a year later for £9m – a then British record fee for a goalkeeper.
He has spent the last five-and-a-half years with Celtic, but lost his place for the second half of last season and has featured just six times this term.
