Hearts have taken Finnish international Kari Arkivuo on trial from Dutch second-tier side Go Ahead Eagles, where he has played since 2008.

Arkivuo, a 27-year-old midfielder, has featured eight times for the Finland national team and has experience of the Norwegian and Finnish leagues.

Hearts manager Jim Jefferies told the club website: "He's one that's been recommended to us.

"We're having a look at him over the next couple of days."

The Finn may feature for the Edinburgh side in their English pre-season friendlies against Gillingham and Millwall.
