Heart of Midlothian are to apply to go into administration, bringing to a head the financial crisis that has engulfed the club in recent years.

The club has accountants KPMG lined up to take control of its affairs after becoming unable to meet its financial commitments, putting the jobs of over 100 employees in jeopardy.

The situation at Tynecastle has become increasingly complex since the collapse of Vladimir Romanov's business empire and reports suggest there could be a courtroom battle over the administration move.

STV has rounded up all the latest news, comment and reaction from across all sources to keep you up to date with the latest developments on the club's future.

This page will be updated throughout the day as Hearts learn if they are successful in appointing KPMG and what this would mean for players, employees and supports of the Tynecastle side.
