But the centre-half has returned to his homeland nearly ten years after leaving FBK Kaunas for Hearts.

Zaliukas said: “After nine years aboard I’m a little bit exhausted and I don’t want to torture myself because I know that I will be happy in Lithuania.

“I got offers from foreign clubs, there were some from England and some further afield.

“My main goal is just to get back playing football.”
