Hearts long search for a striker of some merit was finally rewarded today with the signing of Kilmarnock centre forward Kevin Kyle. The 28 year old left Rugby Park under freedom of contract and has penned a two year deal to be reunited with the man who took him to Ayrshire - Jim Jefferies - and a new career at Tynecastle.
Kyle has impressed me the times I've seen him play and with the departure of the lumbering Christian Nade, it will be a refreshing change to see Hearts actually threaten to score goals. Who knows, the big man may even rekindle his Scotland career.
Now Hearts need someone in midfield. Craig Bryson perhaps?
