A man has been charged in connection with a fraud against football club Hearts.

Inquiries have been ongoing since the alleged offence was reported to police on 10 August.

At the time, the Edinburgh side issued a statement confirming it had been the subject of internet fraud earlier in the year.

Police Scotland said a 32-year-old man had been arrested on Wednesday in connection with the offence.
