Liverpool defender Danny Wilson looks set to complete a move to SPL club Hearts after they were cleared to sign the player following a transfer embargo.

Hearts have been fighting an on-going administration battle of late, as their supporters battle to keep the club's finances alive.

Hearts' administration had initially meant that new players couldn't be signed, but Wilson has been a registered Hearts player in the past, following a loan-move at Tynecastle in January. 

Wilson's contract at Liverpool expired at the end of this season, and boss Brendan Rodgers has taken the decision to release to Scottish international rather than offer him a new deal at Anfield. 

Wilson struggled to force his way into the Liverpool first team during his Anfield tenure, making only two league appearances during his three-year stay at the club.

Consequently, he spent much of his time on loan, making moves to Blackpool, Bristol City and Hearts during his time at Liverpool.

But he didn't do enough to convince Rodgers on these spells to re-sign him, and it now looks he will sign a permanent deal at Hearts in the coming days. 

A statement on the Hearts website read: "As the 21-year-old is already registered with the club there is no restriction on his move."

And Hearts manager Gary Lock has voiced his delight at re-signing the former Liverpool man.

"I am really pleased," Lock told Hearts' website. "Danny was already due to be a part of the team and the administration has made no difference to his status. I appreciate that there have been some difficult decisions made regarding player redundancies."
