Profile

Exciting young forward Leeroy Makovora joined City in September 2020 on a loan deal from Heart of Midlothian, initially until January.

Born in Tranent, Leeroy made his first team debut for Hearts aged just sixteen on the final day of the 2017/18 season against Kilmarnock, just weeks after penning his first professional contract with the Edinburgh club.

He spent time on loan to Lowland League side Spartans last season and will now look to gain further valuable first time experience with City in League 2.

After the loan signing was confirmed Manager Mark Wilson commented, "We're really looking forward to working with Leeroy. He is someone with immense talent and has been in and around Hearts' first team over the last couple of years. He has earned himself a new contract for this season under Robbie Neilson so he is obviously one that Hearts have high hopes for.

"I have been in touch with the Hearts staff about him for a number of weeks now. I've spoken to John Rankin (Under 18 & Reserve coach) who thinks he has huge potential and I've also discussed with his former boss Craig Levein who spoke about him in glowing terms.

"He is a player with electric pace and can play off either wing or through the middle upfront and will compliment the other players that we've got. He will hopefully fit in with our style of play and grabs goals for us. His ambition is to go back to Hearts a much better player, ready for first team football there."
