Hearts defender Stephen Kingsley revealed that he is focused on success on the pitch rather than his future as his contract runs out at the end of the season. The defender moved to Hearts in October 2020 after he was released by Hull. Kingsley has impressed this season scoring four times including a free-kick against St Mirren in the Scottish Premiership. He admitted that contract talks are ongoing but want to be sure about the decision when the time is right.
“The next decision I make is probably going to lead me up until I’m 30, so it’s a big, big decision.” Hearts defender Stephen Kingsley said. “From a personal point of view, we’re coming into a really tough time in the season where there’s going to be a lot of games, so I’m just focusing on that just now and whatever happens outside of that I’ll let my agent deal with. Conversations have taken place but nothing has happened so far – it is something that will maybe happen in the near future. It is going to be a slow process and we’ll take it as it comes.”
“You can see them gradually becoming more confident with their style of play,” he added. “You could certainly see that in the cup game we played at Parkhead, I thought they were brilliant. It’s going to be a tough challenge for us, but it’s one we’re ready for. The first season being in the Championship brought its own challenges, but it was more the project over the next three or four years that I was focusing on.”
