Heart of Midlothian Football Club has confirmed that it will explore options to either redevelop its Tynecastle Stadium or move to a new home as it looks to improve facilities and potential revenue.
The Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier League side will work with the City of Edinburgh Council as well as commissioning consultants to ‘investigate all potential options’.
A statement on the club’s official site hinted that Herts may be leaning towards a move as opposed to staying at Tynecastle.
The statement said: "Hearts has explored a number of options around the redevelopment of Tynecastle Stadium but it has become increasingly difficult, however, to overcome significant hurdles in relation to health and safety regulations and general restrictions on development potential.
"The club also believes that the commercial viability of redevelopment of Tynecastle should be measured against all available relocation options in order to deliver the best long term on and off field solution for Hearts."
Reports from the exercise will be presented to the Council's Economic Development Committee before any decision is made whilst fans and stakeholders are also being asked to input their views via a survey on the club’s website.
