Hibernian Ladies defender Clare Williamson has joined Heart of Midlothian on loan until the end of the season.
Clare is looking to get back to full fitness after almost two years out of the game through injury and is hoping for some additional minutes with the SWPL 2 side.
Hibernian Head Coach Grant Scott hopes to see her back fighting for a first-team place in pre-season and said: “Clare is one of the longest-serving players in our squad and has found it difficult to get back in the team after her time out.
“Our aim is to get her playing matches, which we hope she can do at Hearts – gaining the valuable minutes she needs to come back even stronger.
“Clare has been a terrific servant to this club and we hope she’s back fighting for her position come pre-season.
“I must also say a thank you to Hearts’ Kevin Murphy, who has been great to deal with.
“He was understanding of our position and Clare’s. They’re obviously hoping to benefit from having a top-class player competing in their squad.”
