Hearts Sign Lee and Mulraney
Hearts have confirmed the signings of winger Jake Mulraney and midfielder Olly Lee.
22-year-old Mulraney has joined from Ladbrokes Championship side Inverness Caledonian Thistle in a deal which sees Hearts youngster Adam Beith join the Highlanders.
The Irishman was previously at English sides Nottingham Forest, Queens Park Rangers, Dagenham & Redbridge and Stevenage. He has signed a two-year deal at Tynecastle.
Olly Lee has signed from English side Luton Town and has penned a three-year deal with the Maroons. The son of former Newcastle United and England midfielder Rob Lee, Olly was previously at West Ham United and Gillingham as well, like Mulraney, a spell at Dagenham & Redbridge. He also played for Birmingham City and Plymouth Arygle before moving to Luton Town.
Lee told the official Hearts website:
“It’s a huge club. I saw the training ground and the stadium here is brilliant. To come to the (Hibs) game and see the atmosphere, the fans really sold it for me.
“Craig Levein has been massive, he’s been very enthusiastic about next season and I can’t wait to get started. He’s been brilliant. He’s the key reason for selling the club to me. We’re just looking to kick on.”
Rob Lee and Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer have both sent their best wishes to Olly on social media.
