Hearts complete loan signing of Man United goalkeeper
The Portugal under-21s international has signed for Hearts for the remainder of the season.
Hearts have confirmed the loan signing of Manchester United goalkeeper Joel Pereira on a season-long deal.
The Swiss-born 23-year-old, who has been capped 16 times for Portugal under-21s, will join the Tynecastle side after the deal gains international clearance.
Pereira started his career with Swiss side Neachatel Xamax as a youth player before joining the EPL giants in 2012.
He has made a total of three appearances during his six-year spell at Old Trafford that also included loan-spells at Rochdale in England's League One, Belenenses and Vitoria Setubal in Portugal and Belgian side Kortrijk.
The 6ft2 keeper, who was included in the Portugal squad for the 2016 Olympics, made his first-team debut for Man Utd against Wigan in 2017.
In his three games at Old Trafford, against Wigan, Crystal Palace and Burton Albion, he only conceded one goal and retains a 100% win record.
He will now compete for the number one jersey at Tynecastle and could be available for selection ahead of the Jambos' League Cup second round tie against Motherwell on Friday night.
