Out-of-favour Hearts midfielder Kenny Anderson is training with Livingston in the hope of landing a one-month loan switch to the Championship outfit.

The 23-year-old, who is out of contract at the end of the season, is surplus to requirements at Tynecastle having failed to make a single appearance so far this term.

Anderson has struggled to make an impression at Hearts after signing from Dutch club RKC Waalwijk on an 18-month deal at the start of the year.

The playmaker, who was born in Holland but has a Scottish dad, was awarded a Championship winner’s medal after making four starts and five substitute appearances during the second half of last season.

Ironically, Anderson’s only goal came in a 3-2 victory over Livingston in February.

The arrival of midfielders Danny Swanson and Arnaud Djoum has forced Anderson further down the pecking order and Hearts head coach Robbie Neilson is willing to let the player leave on loan.

Lions manager Mark Burchill is set to decide today whether to sign the player on a temporary deal.
