Ex-Leeds, Liverpool winger Kewell linked with Melbourne Heart

Reports are suggesting that Harry Kewell could soon sign for Melbourne Heart.

The 34-year old former Leeds United, Liverpool and Galatasaray winger is being heavily linked with a move to the Heart after his short-term loan with Qatari club Al-Gharafa finished recently.

It was believed that Kewell, who previously played with crosstown rivals Melbourne Victory, was set to sign tomorrow but a press conference was called off, however, that has not dampened the spirits of Heart chief Scott Munn.

“We are keen to sign him, but no deal has been done,” Munn said.

“I’d be lying if I said (coach) John Aloisi hadn’t spoken to him, but he spoke to several players while in Europe.

“We believe he’d be a fantastic addition and we need players with a winner’s mentality.”

Kewell was recently left out of Holger Osieck’s Australian squad as they prepare for vital World Cup qualifiers in June.

Heart of Midlothian manager Gary Locke was overjoyed after signing Danny Wilson from Liverpool.

The former Rangers young gun has penned a three-year deal with the Edinburgh club after spending time on loan at Tynecastle last season and Locke is looking forward to calling on his services on a permanent basis.

“I’m delighted that Danny has decided to sign for the club permanently,” the Jambos boss told the club’s official website.

“He has a wealth of experience despite only being 21 years old and has already shown how talented he is in his loan spell here.

“I’d like to thank Liverpool for allowing him to come here in the first instance, and Danny himself for showing faith in this club and choosing us when there was interest elsewhere.

“This is the type of player I want to attract to the club and I firmly believe that if he continues to play the way that he can then he’ll be called back up to the Scotland squad in no time at all.”

Danny Wilson has departed Liverpool to join Heart of Midlothian on a permanent basis.

The 21-year old defender, who arrived at Anfield from Rangers in 2010, spent four months on loan at Tynecastle last season and has now signed with the Jambos on a three-year contract.

Wilson will head to Edinburgh when his Liverpool contract expires this summer and he is excited about the opportunity.

“It didn’t take me long to decide about committing myself to Hearts once the club made it known they were keen to keep me,” he told the club’s official website.

“I just want to play football and I firmly believe that staying at Tynecastle will benefit my career.

“I really enjoyed my time on loan here and am very pleased the move has been made permanent. This is a great club with great supporters and I’m looking forward to helping bring more success to Hearts.

“I believe the club has a bright future with a lot of good young players and being part of that excites me.”

‘He’ll only get better and better’ – Hamann expecting big things from Liverpool midfielder Allen

The Wales international followed manager Brendan Rodgers from Swansea to Anfield last summer, but stuttered in his maiden Merseyside campaign after a bright start

Former Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann believes Joe Allen has enormous potential and has backed the 23-year-old to establish himself at Anfield.

The Welshman joined the Reds from Swansea in 2012 for a fee of £15 million, but has struggled for form since the turn of the year and been displaced in the starting XI by Lucas Leiva.

But Hamann is adamant Allen can fight his way back into the first team next season and is confident that the former Swansea midfielder still has plenty more improving to do.

“It’s a big step up when you go from Swansea to Liverpool but he had a fantastic start,” Hamann told the club’s official website.

“He was absolutely outstanding for the first few months then he missed a couple of games, Lucas has come back in the team – who missed the early parts of the season through injury – and then he found it hard to get back into the team.

“But I think for the first year he’s done ever so well and you’ve got to give him time, he’s only young.  He showed his potential, if anything he’ll only get better and I think there’s a lot to look forward to.

“If he adds skills to his game then I think he can play in various positions in the centre of midfield because he’s a clever player, he’s a very good passer of the ball, he spots danger and he’s a team player.

“Now he needs to crack on and take his game to the next level, not only for Liverpool but also for Wales.

“He’s at a top club now, he will have gained a lot of experience from that and I hope he can put that to good use for his club and country.

“I think you will see a lot more from him in the future because he is a terrific player.”
