Juanma leaves Hearts on season-long loan to Murcia

Juanma has spent one season at Hearts

Spanish striker Juanma has moved to his homeland to sign for Murcia on a season-long loan from Hearts.

The 25-year-old has joined for the Segunda Division club after scoring 13 goals in 39 appearances last season at Tynecastle.

Head coach Robbie Neilson told the Hearts website: "Juanma has expressed a desire to play regular first-team football.

"So we decided a loan move would be the best solution for both parties."

Juanma had joined the Scottish Premiership outfit after leaving Greek Superleague club Kalloni last year.

"We have brought in a number of strikers over the course of the summer months, so needless to say there is a great deal of competition up front," added Neilson.

"Hopefully this will enable him to get plenty of game time under his belt over the course of the season."
