Hearts boss Craig Burley has added goalkeeping cover in the form of Gillingham's Steve Banks.

The 33-year-old joins the Scottish Premier League side after bringing an end to his second spell with The Gills.

The much-travelled custodian has signed a two-year deal with the Edinburgh club to become back-up to Jambos number one Craig Gordon.

"We needed to provide experienced back-up for Craig Gordon and Steve will do very well here at Hearts," Burley told the club's official website.

"The signing of Steve provides Hearts with good cover in this area of the side and that will be useful as the season goes on."
