Hearts owner Vladimir Romanov has confirmed he is seeking a buyer for the Clydesdale Bank Premier League club.

Romanov earlier this month declared his growing disillusionment with Scottish football and has now issued instructions to sell Hearts as well as his majority share holding in Lithuania's FK Kaunas and Partizan Minsk in Belarus. The Russia-born Lithuanian businessman first invested in Hearts in 2004 but the club are around £30million in debt.

Their Tynecastle Stadium home has previously been labelled unfit for redevelopment, and Romanov is apparently unwilling to stump up the cash, telling Russian news agency RIA Novosti: "I want to leave football. I have given the order to find buyers for all my clubs. I want to buy a theatre and sell the clubs."
