Scotland Under-21 goalkeeper Mark Ridgers has signed a new two-year contract, tying him to the Tynecastle club until the end of season 2013/14.

Ridgers, 21, joined Hearts in April 2007 from Ross County where he had come through the youth ranks.

He has yet to make his top-team club debut but won his first Under-21 cap in November in Scotland's European Championship qualifying win in Holland.

The Inverness-born keeper was on loan at East Fife earlier this season.

Ridgers' decision follows that of Jamie MacDonald, who on Friday also signed a new two-year deal.
