Dunne set to stay with Hearts
Hearts manager Craig Levein has this morning reported that Hearts have an agreement in principle with Sean Dyche to extend Jimmy Dunne’s loan until the end of the season.
He joined them when they suddenly lost two players, Christophe Berra and John Souttar, to injury but such has been his form that there has been a clamour to try and get that loan extended. It is, for now, no more than an agreement in principle.
Dunne joined Burnley from Manchester United as an 18-year-old in the summer of 2016 and he’s now played a total of 54 first team games for three clubs out on loan.
That started last season when he signed a loan deal with Barrow for whom he played 21 times. They wanted to keep him beyond January but he returned with glowing reports to allow him to move on to Accrington and help them into League One, making 20 appearances.
Again, Accrington were keen to get him back there this season but he moved into the Scottish Premiership with Hearts and has already played 13 times for them. He’s been hugely popular with the fans and received rave reports following his performance in the feisty Edinburgh derby against Hibs at the end of last month, which ended 0-0.
Should the agreement be confirmed, he will remain with Hearts until the end of the season.Share this page :
