Klye's our man

Kevin Kyle 1Jim Jeffries has linked up with Kevin Kyle again and brought him to Tynecastle just 18 months after taking him to Rugby Park. Jeffries knows what Kyle's strengths are and will make the most of them as he build a squad for 2010-11. The striker passed a medical and agreed a two year deal Kyle is Hearts' second new recruit for next season after Falkirk captain Darren Barr signed a pre-contract last season.

Kyle, whose previous clubs include Sunderland and Coventry, said earlier today: "I'm very happy. My family was the most important thing. I had offers elsewhere but my family has to come first at the end of the day. Hearts is a good club to go to and I can't wait to get started. I'm pleased to be meeting up with Jim and Billy (Brown) again because they helped me a lot when I left Coventry. I went back up the road to Kilmarnock and had a good season and a half under them so it will be good to team up with them again. Hopefully I can do what I did for them at Kilmarnock."
