Driver to hold talks over future

Hearts winger Andrew Driver
Driver scored five goals for Hearts last season

Andrew Drivers' agent will meet with Hearts officials next week to discuss the winger's future following summer interest from other clubs.

Burnley have rejected suggestions that they are about to make a third offer for the 20-year-old likely to be in the region of 1m.

But Scott Fisher told BBC Sport: "I will be speaking to Hearts next week."

A Burnley spokesman said: "We can categorically state there has been no fresh bid for Andrew Driver."

Burnley's Scottish manager, Owen Coyle, recently said that he would wait for further contact from Hearts after having a second bid rejected.


Meanwhile, Hearts captain Christophe Berra set aside renewed speculation linking him with a move to Wolverhampton Wanderers to praise the side's pre-season preparations.

Hearts have yet to appoint a new manager after a fruitless summer search.

But Berra told the Scottish Premier League club's website: "I've been three or four seasons and this is one of the hardest pre-season's we've done.

"In two or three weeks all the running will be finished and we will be fit and sharp and ready for the new season."
