Hearts striker Jamie Mole has returned to full training after undergoing an ankle operation in the summer.
The 21-year-old, who had a spell on loan at Dunfermline last season, took part in a training session on Tuesday and Hearts manager Csaba Laszlo is delighted with his return
Laszlo was thwarted during the transfer window in a bid to sign a new forward, and with fellow striker Calum Elliot ruled out for up to seven weeks, he will be hoping Mole can find his feet quickly.
"Jamie has worked hard to get himself back on the training ground," Laszlo told Hearts News.
"He has a lot of work still ahead of him as he hasn't played for a while. But he learned a lot last season and we will look at him and see how he is doing."
