Krystian Nowak joins Greek side Panionios from Hearts

Krystian Nowak has been a peripheral figure at Hearts this season

Hearts have allowed Krystian Nowak to move to Greek top-flight side Panionios.

The versatile Pole, 23, made 25 appearances for the club, but only one since Craig Levein took charge in September.

Nowak follows Ashley Smith-Brown out of Tynecastle after the full-back returned to Manchester City ahead of another loan switch to Oxford United.

Smith-Brown only made three appearances during an injury-hit spell in Gorgie.

Striker Nikolay Todorov has cut short his second loan spell to Livingston and has returned to Hearts after the 21-year-old forward scored four goals in 24 appearances for the Championship side this season.

But Dario Zanatta has returned to Raith Rovers on loan for the rest of the season.

The 20-year-old winger netted for Hearts against Hamilton Accies last week after scoring six times for Rovers in the first half of the season.

Under-20s duo Kyle Smith and Aaron Reid have also left the club and Canadian midfielder Harry Paton has returned to Stenhousemuir on loan.
