Hearts striker Elliot joins Livingston on loan

HEARTS have allowed out-of-favour striker Calum Elliot to join Livingston on loan.
The 22-year-old, who had been a target for Inverness and MK Dons, will remain with the First Division club until January.

Elliot had been frozen out of Hearts' first-team squad since the arrival of new manager Csaba Laszlo and pleaded to be allowed to move on.

Livingston were pleased with the capture.

Chairman Angelo Massone told the club's official website, "We are delighted to have reached an agreement with Hearts, and very pleased that a player of Calum Elliot's quality is coming to the club.

"I am certain that he will prove a valuable addition to our pool of players."

Laszlo suggested Elliot needed to go out on loan but return to Tynecastle to fight for his place after gaining regular first-team football.

The Scotland Under-21 forward came through the youth ranks at Hearts before making his debut in September 2004.

He had a loan spell with Motherwell during the 2006-07 season and has been in and out of the Hearts side since returning to club.

Meanwhile, Hearts full-back Robbie Neilson has travelled to London to see a specialist about his Achilles problem.

The 28-year-old, who has missed the Jambos' opening three Clydesdale Bank Premier League games, is hoping to receive permission to resume training.

Neilson also sat out the closing weeks of the previous campaign due to a stomach muscle complaint.

He told the club's official website, "It's not been much fun over the past few weeks. I got over the stomach problem but then the Achilles flared up."

Neilson has been a fixture in the Hearts side over the past five seasons and won a Scotland cap in 2006 against Ukraine.

"Hopefully, I'm over the worst of it and, with a bit of luck, after the trip to London I can start looking at getting back into full training in the not too distant future," he added.
