Hearts are taking a close look at Anton Peterlin.
The US midfielder is available on a free transfer this summer, having left Walsall after just one season at the English League One club.
Peterlin, who has also been employed by Everton and Plymouth Argyle in the past, is said to be keen to remain in Britain to continue his career.
And the 25-year-old has now been handed a trial at Scottish side Hearts, who will take a look at him over the coming week before deciding whether to offer him a deal.
