Steven Naismith 'will see out playing days' at Hearts
Scotland forward has signed a four-year deal at Tynecastle following two loan spells.
Scotland striker Steven Naismith has signed a four-year contract with Hearts.
The former Rangers and Everton star has been training with the club following two loan spells and was expected to sign a contract after the end of July once he had received a final payment from Norwich.
The 32-year-old scored 14 goals in 27 appearances for Hearts last season during a campaign in which he had two knee operations.
Speaking to Hearts TV, he said: "I've loved every minute I've been here. I've enjoyed it and it's been a very good fit for me as a player.
"The squad's had a lot of change in that time and I think I've played a big part in trying to guide that to where we want to go.
"The people at the club are fantastic and I've had a good relationship with not only the boys in the team but the manager and everybody around the club. It fits me.
"I'll see out my playing days here at Hearts. That was something for me to think about.
"At this stage of your career you do need to think about what you want to do in the game, or what you want to do in the time remaining as a player, so that took an initial bit of time with making my decision."
