Scott Fraser’s move to Hearts makes progress after talks with Charlton Athletic

The midfielder is prepared to support Tynecastle Park’s European campaign.

Following discussions with Charlton Athletic, Scott Fraser hopes to complete a loan move to Hearts within the next 36 hours. The midfield player has a loan agreement with both teams, and the deal might be finalized before Thursday, January 31st, at 11:45 p.m.

Fraser has expressed to Charlton his desire to go back to Scotland and his willingness to support Hearts in their attempt to secure third place in the inevitable Premiership. The London team had committed to loan Fraser to Hearts through the end of the season, but the transfer was delayed after manager Michael Appleton was fired.

In order to register Fraser with the Scottish Football Association as quickly as possible, Tynecastle officials have asked that their Charlton colleagues approve the agreement. All parties involved are optimistic that the paperwork will be completed soon since progress is being made.

Fraser, 28, would be the second new addition to Hearts if all goes according to plan. Earlier this month, defender Dexter Lembikisa joined Hearts on loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers. This month, Tynecastle made midfield reinforcements a top goal after Alex Lowry returned to parent club Rangers and Andy Halliday signed a loan deal with Motherwell.

Fraser was a regular with Charlton during the first half of the season, making 22 appearances, however he is eager to leave the English League One side and return to Scotland to continue his career. He came through Dundee United’s youth system and had a spell on loan at Airdrie before moving to England in 2018. He has since played for Burton Albion, MK Dons, Ipswich Town and Charlton.
