Dutchman on trial as Hearts strive to strengthen their strike force

Hearts are running the rule over the former Ajax academy striker Rafael Uiterloo as they continue to hunt for attacking reinforcements.

The 23-year-Dutchman played a bounce game against Stenhousemuir on Sunday, with a Hearts XI running out 3-1 winners.

It is understood Hearts are keen to pursue a deal for their other trialist striker, Osman Sow, with discussions ongoing involving the Swedish player's agent following an impressive display against East Fife, recently. However, should that move fall through, Uiterloo, who had a trial with Atletico Madrid in 2012, and has played in the Dutch third tier and in the United Arab Emirates, could prove a viable alternative.

Callum Paterson, the versatile 19-year-old, has signed a new three-year deal at the club.
