Livingston boss Mark Burchill wants to have another look at Kenny Anderson

Livingston manager Mark Burchill is hoping to get the chance to have another look at Kenny Anderson next week as he weighs up a loan move for the out-of-favour Hearts midfielder.

Anderson has trained with the Championship outfit for the last two days after being told he is surplus to requirements at Tynecastle.

But with the 23-year-old lacking fitness having failed to make a single appearance for Robbie Neilson’s side this season, Burchill has invited the playmaker back for an extended training stint next week.

Speaking to Capital City Press, Burchill said: “I’m hoping to have another look at Kenny in training next week as he’s needs to build up his fitness.”

Anderson, who was born in Holland but has a Scottish dad, joined Hearts from Dutch club Waalwijk on an 18-month deal at the start of the year, but has struggled to make an impact in Gorgie.

The attacking midfielder picked up a Championship winner’s medal last season after making nine appearances, including five from the substitutes bench.
