Hearts' new striker Craig Beattie has confirmed he had offers elsewhere prior to finalising his move to Tynecastle.

Craig Beattie: Opted for Tynecastle move

The 28-year-old was a free agent after leaving Swansea and he opted to join Hearts on a contract until the summer.

Beattie has confirmed he spoke with St Mirren manager Danny Lennon, but refused to go into detail over the talks.

The ex-Swans hit-man scored his first goal for his new club in Saturday's Scottish Cup quarter-final against the Buddies and he feels it would be unfair on both clubs to talk about things in greater depth.

"I had a couple of offers and I had some dialogue with Danny but I think it would be disrespectful to St Mirren and Hearts if I spoke too much about it," conceded Beattie.

"All I'll say is there were offers."
