Hearts sign attacking midfielder Scott Fraser on loan from Charlton HMFC

Hearts have signed Charlton player Scott Fraser on loan for the rest of the season.

The 28-year-old attacking midfielder has made 16 appearances for the English League One side this season.

He will now move to Tynecastle to join with Steven Naismith’s squad as they look to cement their position in third place.

Fraser came through the ranks at Dundee United and made his professional debut at Tannadice as a teenager in 2014 before moving to Airdrie for a season long.

He returned to the Tayside club the following year and made a total of 106 appearances before moving south to Burton Albion in 2018.

Spells at MK Dons and Ipswich Town then followed before he made the move to Charlton three years ago.

After the move was confirmed on Wednesday, with just over 24 hours left of the transfer window, Steven Naismith said: “I’m pleased that we’ve been able to get the deal done and welcome Scott into the squad.

“He’s a great character, has got bags of experience and knows Scottish football well so he should settle in quickly.

“He’ll bring an aggressiveness to our attack in that he always wants to get forward. He’s consistently scored goals and provided lots of assists, both in Scotland and England, and the hope is that he’ll be able to do the same for Hearts as we look to continue our good run of form.”
