The Swedish striker, 24, has moved to Tynecastle on a two-year deal after a year-long spell at Crystal Palace.

The forward scored in recent friendlies against East Fife and Manchester City and joins Hearts despite never having played at Selhurst Park.

Hearts head coach Robbie Neilson told the club's official website: "I'm delighted to get Osman here. He's a tall, athletic player who will add strength to our forward line.

"He's a quality player and spent last season down in the English Premier League with Crystal Palace, so it's a bit of a coup to get him here.

"I've been impressed with him in training and with his appearances against East Fife and Manchester City. I'm very satisfied now with the attacking options that we have."

Sow himself said: "I'm happy to have signed for Hearts. It's a massive club which should be in the top flight.

"There's a good bunch of lads here and everybody is working hard. The staff have been brilliant so I'm happy.

"I'm happy to play my football here and I can't wait to do it as soon as possible."

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
