In bid the lift the ultimate that have eluded Hearts since 2009, Papic has hinted that his outfit will sign new players in the upcoming transfer window.

“We are working on that (reinforcements), no doubt about that. It’s not going to be a lot of changes but we are working very hard on that issue to bring new players to the squad, there is no doubt about that,” Papic said in an interview.
