Hearts have announced the signing of Everton midfielder Beni Baningime on a three-year deal.

The 22-year-old found it hard to secure regular playing time at Everton after making professional debut at the club in October 2017.

"Both sides were really keen to get the deal done which is always a positive," Hearts sporting director Joe Savage told the club's website.

"Beni has had a great schooling at Everton. He's won the Premier League 2 twice with David Unsworth's team and I know there is a really high standard down there, but he's now ready to play first team football and we can give him that platform.

"We've stressed that we want to sign quality over quantity and in Beni I think we've got ourselves a quality player with the potential to do really well for Hearts."
