Hearts’ King close to Rangers loan

Hearts winger Billy King

Billy King was training with Hearts on Thursday morning

Hearts forward Billy King is close to completing a loan move to Rangers.

King, 21, is in Glasgow for a medical and Hearts are keen for the player to get first-team games as he continues his recovery from injury.

The winger has made almost 90 appearances, including 20 this season, for the Tynecastle side since 2013.

He helped Hearts win the Championship last season – the division Rangers currently lead – and the Edinburgh outfit sit third in the Premiership.

Rangers have had bids rejected for St Johnstone forward Michael O’Halloran during the January transfer window.

And Hearts have so far been unsuccessful in their attempts to sign Dundee United central defender and midfielder John Souttar.
