Hearts boss Csaba Laszlo is considering signing Everton striker Kieran Agard on loan next month.
Laszlo, who is looking to wrap up loan deals for strikers Izale McLeod and Steven MacLean this week, told the Edinburgh Evening News: "In the last couple of days, we have brought two players here and we must make a decision about this.
"Then we have one month to do something. Agard is still in my mind, and we also have other names who wish to come to us."
Agard, 20, broke into the Everton first team this season, making his first senior start in this month's Europa League win at BATE Borisov.
Former Manchester United and Rangers midfielder Bojan Djordjic may also be on Laszlo's radar after revealing he was aware of interest from the Tynecastle club. Djordjic, 27, is under contract at AIK Stockholm until 2012.
He said: "I have heard there is interest from Hearts. I don't actually know what is happening there so I have to speak to my club.
"I haven't spoken to our chief executive so I can't say anything more at the moment. I have three more years on my contract so it's hard to speak about something that's actually happening in the background."
Meanwhile, Jambos winger Andrew Driver is hoping to make his latest comeback from injury at the end of January.
A knee problem has sidelined the 22-year-old for almost two months, the injury striking weeks after his return from a foot injury.
"The rehab has been going pretty well," Driver told Hearts' Matchday Magazine. "It has been a niggling injury which has been taking a while to clear up. I'm hoping that by the middle of January I can really get back into the running and everything. Not long after that, I would hope to be able to play again."
