Hearts extend Cammy Devlin by further year until 2025

Heart of Midlothian has exercised its club option to extend Subway Socceroos midfielder Cammy Devlin's contract by a further year, keeping him at Tynecastle Park until June 2025.

The 25-year-old, who has two caps for Australia, joined Hearts ahead of the 2021/22 season and has since accumulated 81 appearances, scoring five goals.

Known for his industry and tireless work-rate, Devlin has become a key cog in the Jam Tarts' engine room following his arrival.

Jambos Head Coach Steven Naismith spoke highly of the tenacious midfielder and was delighted to know his future will continue in Edinburgh.

“It’s great news that Cammy will be a Hearts player beyond the end of this season," Naismith said via a club statement.

“It shouldn’t be underestimated how difficult it is for a young player to move to the other side of the world and adapt to a different style of football as well as a different way of life.

“But it’s to Cammy’s credit that he’s done it seamlessly. He gets the club, gets the expectations of playing for Hearts and he thrives on it.

“He’s always improving and I’m excited to see just how far he push himself, and the team, forward.”

Hearts Sporting Director Joe Savage added: “Cammy’s made a huge impact since we brought him to the club so it really was a no-brainer to activate our year’s option on his contract.

“He never gives anything less than 100% on the pitch, and his performances for Hearts got him to a World Cup.

“I know he’s a fans’ favourite so I’m sure they’ll be as happy as we are that he will be a Hearts player for even longer.

“Cammy and the club have been good for each other so we’ll sit down in the near future and hopefully open talks about a brand new deal.”

Devlin is expected to be in action when Hearts take on Kilmarnock in the quarter finals of the Scottish League Cup on Wednesday morning (AEST).
