Gomis has been brought to Hearts by director of football Levein and head coach Robbie Neilson as they challenge Rangers and Hibernian for the Scottish Championship title.

Levein took Gomis to Tannadice from Cowdenbeath and the defensive midfielder went on to win the Scottish Cup before earning a move to Birmingham. He had a second spell with United last season.

Gomis told Hearts TV: "He (Levein) is the reason why I'm here. He signed me for Dundee United and the player I am today is because of him.

"I thank him very much for that and hopefully I can repay the favour by playing well week in, week out."

The 28-year-old, who has signed a three-year deal, becomes Hearts' most experienced player, and Levein and Neilson have asked him to help school the young players at the club.

Gomis, who has been capped by Senegal, said: "I spoke to the manager and he told me what he wants me to do in the club, like looking after the players, so it's a big responsibility but I'm looking forward to it. Hopefully I can show a good example to them.

"It's a great challenge. The manager has put a lot of faith in me and I'm going to do my best and hope the young boys learn from me."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
