Hearts Fans Get Brilliant News On Jimmy Dunne’s Future

Hearts fans have got brilliant news on Jimmy Dunne‘s future at the club.

The Irish centre back has been an outstanding addition for Craig Levein’s men since moving to Tynecastle on loan from Burnley in the summer.

At the start of the season, Christophe Berra and John Souttar appeared as the two preferred centre halves, but early injuries to both appeared to give a hammer blow to the Jambos’ season.

That’s not been the case however, with Dunne emerging as one half of a quality central defensive partnership with Clevid Dikamona.

Both have been hugely influential as Hearts sit joint top of the Scottish Premiership after 13 games.

But there are concerns that Dunne won’t be able to remain at the club beyond the loan spell that is due to end in January.

Those concerns should vanish now though – with Levein saying today that Burnley boss Sean Dyche has told him that Dunne would benefit from staying at Hearts until the end of the season:

That is some very good news for Hearts fans.

Dunne has played 13 times for the Jambos this season and should go on to be a mainstay in the team if he remains at Tynecastle in the second half of the season.
