Aguiar set to stay, but Balogh bid rejected


Bruno Aguiar is on the brink of signing a new two-year deal with Hearts, but the Tynecastle club seem likely to miss out on goalkeeper Janos Balogh.

Aguiar, who has been outstanding since returning from an 18-month injury-enforced lay-off, has snubbed offers from Portugal and English Championship side QPR to open talks with the Edinburgh side on extending his stay.

The 27-year-old midfielder has missed the last four games due to a hamstring injury, but is ready to return to the squad for tomorrow's trip to Kilmarnock.

His agent, Paolo Barbosa, said: "We have opened talks with Vladimir Romanov about a new contract and are discussing extending Bruno's stay by two or possibly three years.

"They have first option on him and right now we aren't even looking at a move to any other club. Bruno has made the decision he wants to give Hearts the opportunity to keep him before looking elsewhere.

"We have a very good relationship with the club. I'd expect our talks to be successfully concluded within the next two weeks."

However, Hearts have had a £75,000 bid for on-loan Balogh rejected by Debrecen, who want double that amount.

A Debrecen spokesman said: "We made an agreement with Hearts on the transfer fee when the initial loan deal was signed, but now Hearts have changed their mind and want a big reduction on the agreed fee. If no deal is agreed, then he will be back at our club for training on Monday."

Csaba Laszlo, the Hearts manager, admitted: "It is not in my hands now. At the moment I try to do the best that I can and now the board must decide what happens.

"Janos is a professional and I am sure that if he has to go back and his last game is against Kilmarnock, then he will still go out and do his best for the club."
