The club are thrilled to announce the signing of attacker Dario Zanatta for an undisclosed fee from fellow cinch Championship side Raith Rovers.
A product of the Hearts youth academy, the 25-year-old has also enjoyed spells with Partick Thistle and Ayr United prior to his arrival in Lanarkshire.
Speaking after signing his two-year contract earlier today, Zanatta said: “I am delighted to have signed for the club. Obviously, I have worked with the gaffer before at Hearts, and when the opportunity came up to work with him again I was very keen to sign.
“I’ve had a couple of conversations with him and his vision for the club is one which excites me. As a player, I want to create chances and do what I can to help this team win football matches.“
The Canadian becomes our fifth signing of the summer transfer window and Head Coach John Rankin is delighted to secure his services.
He said: “Dario is a fantastic addition to the squad we have here. He is direct and likes to make things happen in attack. I think he is one who will excite the supporters.
“I’ve worked with him before when he was a young kid, and you could see the talent he had then. He comes here with a good bit of experience under his belt and will improve the quality and the depth we have in the wider areas.”
Dario will wear the number 10 jersey.
