Driver in on the deal

Andrew Driver was due to come back from Lithuania today after he had met up with Hearts owner Vladimir Romanov. There is still some uncertainty over the wingers future after he returned from holiday last Wednesday. There are a number of clubs said to be interested in his services and Romanov has suggested that his value would be over the £3.5m mark. The fee may be the stumbling block for some of the clubs but with Chelsea said to be among the interested clubs, that may not be a problem to others.  Burnley, FC Twente, Middlesbrough and Wigan Athletic have all placed a note of interest with the Tynecastle club.

Romanov is willing to do the business if the price is right but he wants to make sure Driver's views are taken into consideration.
