Hearts have turned down a second bid from Wigan Athletic for right-back Callum Paterson.

The original offer was £600,000 but the Championship club increased this by around £100,000.

BBC Scotland has learned there is a substantial gap between this offer and what Hearts are prepared to accept for the 21-year-old.

Paterson was named in Gordon Strachan's Scotland squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifier against Malta.

He made his international debut in May's 1-0 friendly defeat by Italy and has made over 140 appearances for Hearts since 2012.
