DANNY WILSON will be confirmed as a Hearts player today after his registration with Liverpool came to an end.
The Scottish Premier League side announced the 21-year-old defender would join them permanently on a three-year contract this month when his six-month loan deal from the Reds was up.
However, the deal appeared to be in doubt when Hearts were placed in administration and a transfer embargo placed on the club.
It has been reported that Wilson has agreed to take a pay cut to stay at Tynecastle and it is believed the deal will be allowed to go through despite the sanctions placed on Hearts.
A statement from Hearts said: “Heart of Midlothian FC is pleased to confirm that Danny Wilson is to remain at Tynecastle following his period on loan from Liverpool.
“Although the current administration which the club is subject to has meant an embargo on new player registrations, as the 21-year-old is already registered with the club there is no restriction on his move from Liverpool to Hearts.”
Wilson was brought to Anfield in the reign of Roy Hodgson when Liverpool paid Glasgow Rangers £2m for his services.
The young defender made his debut in the ill-fated League Cup tie with Northampton Town and featured eight times in all that season.
Wilson played just once the following campaign and made no appearances for Liverpool last season.
He leaves the club having featured in just two Premier League games.
