Macfarlane wins Hearts deal
Derek Townley tackles Neil Macfarlane in the Edinburgh derby
Macfarlane has made eight appearances for Hearts
Hearts have agreed a new improved deal with midfielder Neil Macfarlane.

The 25-year-old is expected to sign his contract on Monday after impressing in recent games for the Jambos since the liquidation of former club Airdrieonians in the summer.

Macfarlane signed on at the beginning of the season for part-time wages but was still struggling to overcome a serious cruciate injury suffered while playing for the now extinct Diamonds almost a year ago.

Tynecastle manager Craig Levein told the Edinburgh Evening News: "We have agreed terms with Neil Macfarlane and everything should be finalised on Monday.

"He has exceeded expectations and all credit to him for coming back from the injury in the manner he has."

Tough-tackling Macfarlane, who had earlier spells with Queen's Park and Kilmarnock, has made eight appearances for Hearts.
