Hearts director of football Craig Levein has vowed to invest supporters’ money into the Jambos’ playing squad after season ticket sales crashed through the 10,000-mark.
The capital club have reached the landmark figure after just three weeks of sales, with fans keen to secure their place for the upcoming Premiership and Europa League campaigns.
And, with Hearts confirming ‘demand is set to outstrip supply’, Levein has insists a bumper following next term will help the club reshape the squad for next term.
Connor Sammon, who was at Riccarton for signing talks on Thursday, is expected to formally join the club when his contract expires with Derby County later this month, while it is understood Faycal Rherras will also arrive.
However, the club remain on the hunt for two goalkeepers, a defensive replacement for the departed Blazej Augustyn and reinforcements in the final third, where Gavin Reilly and Juanma are the only options.
Levein said: “The money generated from season tickets sales will, amongst other things, play a crucial role in helping the football department shape the playing squad ahead of what promises to be another exciting season for the club and supporters.
“To have sold 10,000 season tickets in such a short space of time is nothing short of incredible.”
