Hearts targeting World Cup duo

Hearts head coach Valdas Ivanauskas hopes to sign two World Cup stars but will not reveal the identities of his summer targets.

"World Cup players from Europe," was his response to being asked for names of the defender and midfielder.

"There are two players who played in the World Cup, but after that there is a holiday. They have not signed yet.

"I hope next week, starting from Monday, I am hopeful of two or three players coming in."

Hearts have also already been in talks about signing South Korea striker Ahn Jung-hwan from Duisburg.

But his agent has warned that Hearts face competition from clubs in England and Spain and has urged them to move quickly.

Giorgi Popkhadze, a left-sided 19-year-old presently with Olympiakos, has impressed Ivanauskas on trial.

And Portuguese trialist Tiago Costa, who was with Benfica last season, will be given a chance to impress against Preston North End on Saturday.
