Hearts boss Csaba Laszlo is keen to bring Danish striker Mike Tullberg back to Tynecastle next season.
Tullberg managed just seven appearances during his loan spell from Reggina with two thigh muscle ruptures keeping him on the sidelines.
The 23-year-old has now returned to the Italian club, who were recently relegated to Serie B, but Laszlo believes fresh terms could be struck between all parties.
"Mike has not had good possibilities this season because of injuries," he told the Edinburgh Evening News.
"His Italian club is relegated and we must talk with them and with Mike for next season.
"He is a player who has a good attitude and I think, normally, he can play in the Scottish Premier League.
"We must talk about his future. It depends on his wish, the wishes of Reggina and also his agent. We will sit with Mike and talk about his future."
Tullberg recently expressed his desire to stay in Edinburgh.
