Manchester United transfer news: Demetri Mitchell rejoins Hearts on loan

28 Aug

Hearts have re-signed Manchester United full-back Demetri Mitchell on loan.

The 21-year-old will spend the rest of the season with the Scottish Premiership club, who have now signed 15 new players this summer.

Mitchell made nine appearances for the Tynecastle side last season after joining on loan in January before injury kept him out for two months. He returned to play twice more before the end of the campaign.

Mitchell, who also extended his United contract until 2020, is expected to go straight into the Hearts squad for their league game against St Mirren on Saturday.
