The said bid is believed to be in the region of £5m, it would involve Hearts leaving Tynecastle stadium, to move to a brand new purpose build stadium on the outskirts of Edinburgh.

Sports club 9 have previously failed in bids to purchase two British clubs in the past; Rangers and Sheffield Wednesday.

With the deadline set from the BDO who are Hearts administrators. Club 9 have reportedly set up a new company called HMFC Limited with Bob Jamieson as sole director and have instructed an Edinburgh-based legal company to act on their behalf.

The foundation of Hearts consortium led by ex-Scottish Rugby chief executive Gordon McKie have had a bid rejected along with the Scandinavian company earlier this month.
