Hearts are set to sign former Rangers midfielder Andy Halliday, according to reports.

The Daily Record report that the 28-year-old has agreed terms at Tynecastle and is currently completing his medical with the Edinburgh club.

It is understood that a one-year deal as been agreed and there is an option of a second if they gain promotion back to the Premiership.

Speaking last week Halliday said: "I think it's been five or six weeks since the first offer I had. Since then, I've had six or seven offers from different clubs, different countries.

"Unfortunately for me, there's not been anything I'm eager to jump into. Either financially it's not been right or the club hasn't been right move for myself or my family.

"I've been speaking to a couple of clubs over the past couple of weeks that are only just interested so far and have got my attention.

"It's just a waiting game just, they've got my attention but putting in a bit of interest but, unfortunately, when that comes you need to stall anything else you've got in the background to see if they come to the table.

"I knew it was always going to be a slow process.

"The majority of leagues still haven't started. England have only just started, it's only really Scotland.

"And, because I'm based in Scotland, everyone thinks: 'How are you not sorted yet?'

"Scotland's been going on about six or seven weeks now, everywhere else is just getting back into the swing of things.

"So, the market is slow. I'm still speaking to boys I know who are out of contract and in the same boat as me.

"But I've always said since the start, I'm never going to jump into something I feel is the wrong move and commit to somewhere for a couple of years if I don't feel its right."

He added: "I've still got six weeks or so in the market and I'll make sure I make the right decision when the time comes.

"The most difficult thing for me is I haven't gone two weeks without kicking a football since I was four years old.

"Now I've gone six months without physically touching a football.

"That, obviously, has been the most difficult thing.

"I already know that wherever I go, whatever club I sign for, I'm going to be behind.

"Not only fitness-wise, but the fact I've not had a touch of a football in so long.

"That's extremely difficult but, at the time, it's not going to rush me into making any wrong decisions.

"I'm trying to be smart in what I'm doing. Scottish teams... Listen, I've always worn my heart on my sleeve.

"Any offers from Scottish teams that come in, I've got to consider them. But, at the same time, it's got to be the right club for myself.

"I certainly would like a crack at potentially going back down south or abroad.

"Right now I'm keeping all my options open but I'll try and make the right decision when the time comes."
