Alex Petkov Signs On Loan - By Steven Mew

The Club are pleased to announce that Alex Petkov has joined on a temporary transfer from Heart of Midlothian.

The 6’3’’ centre back began his career at Cherno More Varna in Bulgaria before he joined Hearts at the age of 16 in June 2016. Alex made his debut for the Bulgarian Under-21 team in March 2019 in the starting eleven in a friendly against Northern Ireland U21's. Alex is now a regular starter with the Bulgarian U21 squad and already has 8 caps.

The son of Bulgarian Internationalist Milen Petkov, Alex has spent some time on loan this season to League One side Clyde.

Alex is keen to come and play for Brechin during this crucial spell for the Club as he recognises the role he can play and the experience he can bring to the remaining 13 games we have left to play. The Club wish to thank Alex and Hearts for helping the Club at this time.

Manager Mark Wilson said, "We are delighted Alex has agreed to join us at Brechin City and we are extremely confident that he can play a significant role in helping us climb the table in the remaining 13 games. Alex will add presence and great experience to our defence, while posing an attacking threat at the other end of the pitch.

"While Alex had offers from clubs in higher divisions, it is testament to his character that he has chosen the challenges we face in the coming weeks at Brechin City. We look forward to working with him and have no doubt he will make a positive impact on our squad at this crucial stage of the season."
