Esmael Goncalves nears Hearts exit as Uzbekistan club offer Â£300k
Manager Craig Levein said the striker was “otherwise engaged” when asked about his absence on the BBC Sportsound broadcast.
An offer of around £300,000 has been made to the Tynecastle club, though talks are said to be at an early stage.
Goncalves has been at Hearts for just under a year after joining from Anorthosis Famagusta for £170,000 in last year’s January transfer window.
Meanwhile, Hearts are in talks to sign Copenhagen winger Danny Amankwa. The 23-year-old former Danish youth international has been told he’s free to find a new club.
