HOLT HAS THE HEART FOR PRO­MO­TION

The Football League Paper - - INSIDE -

WITH Hearts be­com­ing the first se­nior club in Bri­tain to win a league ti­tle this sea­son, mid­fielder Ja­son Holt is now tar­get­ing a re­mark­able pro­mo­tion dou­ble on loan at Sh­effield United.

The Ed­in­burgh side claimed the Scot­tish Cham­pi­onship ti­tle last week­end and Holt ad­mits he is de­lighted for his team-mates.

Yet hav­ing made 15 ap­pear­ances for his par­ent club be­fore join­ing the Blades on loan in Jan­uary, the 22-year-old Scot is now fully fo­cused on help­ing his new side achieve the same.

“I was over the moon for the lads at Hearts when they got back into the Premier­ship be­cause I’ve got lots of mates up there,” he said.

“But my fo­cus is on United now and it would be bril­liant if we can go up at the end of the sea­son too.

“That would be the per­fect end and I’ll be do­ing ev­ery­thing to try and make sure it hap­pens.

“There’s a long way to go yet. Ev­ery game be­tween now and then is go­ing to be huge.”
