Hearts have signed defensive midfielder Loic Damour on a four-year deal after he left Cardiff City.

The 28-year-old made 32 appearances in his first season in Wales as they won promotion to the Premier League.

However, the Frenchman made just two top-flight substitute appearances last term as Cardiff were relegated.

"A new chapter is coming for me and my family," Damour told HeartsTV. "New country as well, new league - everything is new."

Damour - who started his career at Strasbourg in his homeland - could make his Hearts debut against Ross County on Saturday, pending clearance.

"I'm very happy to be here," he said. "It's a very good club so I can't wait to start. I had a good feeling with the team, with everyone in the club."
